Etsy shop on sale, at 10% off. The items will read "Black Friday Sale" in their description with the reduced price. Some items may not read that way, which means they fell off the "Etsy on Sale" application boat, a story with which I shall not bore you. Nevertheless, if the items are not showing the 10% discount, I shall merely credit back the discount to the purchaser. There is undoubtedly a less confusing way to communicate this, but I am feeling fatigued. And, I am still adding items to my shop. The sale will continue on to Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Sloppy Sunday, and Cyber Monday. I made up the Sloppy Sunday name, as I'm not sure if it has a handle yet. Keep checking the shop! I must have added at least 20 more earrings in the past 48 hours, I have about another dozen bracelets to add, and haven't even checked out the necklace inventory updates.

These are coral nuggets that I have put on a gunmetal chain. The color of gunmetal is somewhere between silver and black. I made the round connectors from stainless steel wire. It was my first endeavor with stainless steel wire, which is quite stiffer than other wires I have used. The color of the wire is greyer, or darker, than silver wire, so I thought it would match the gunmetal chain.

Rings and Things shows many nice items. The first one to catch my eye was this Red Creek Jasper. Above you see them in large puffed ovals. I love the warm colors of brick, green, and grey, and the way they have those stripes or hash marks. I think these would look great paired with silver or gunmetal colored wire. Small transparent olive crystals would make great spacer beads. These beads also come in other interesting shapes, too.
