Here in south Louisiana it's SO hot in the summertime and the plants are growing like crazy. Our yard has so many azalea bushes and they are almost out of control they are so big and are growing so quickly.
So - they have to be trimmed back. Every year. Even if it's hot. Even if I want to do other things (anything).
Yesterday, I was trimming and realized I was wearing my silver bracelet (one of my favs) and thought I should snap a picture.
Is this jewelry sturdy? Yes.
Does it mind a little (ok, a lot) of heat and humidity? Heck, no.
I am Laura Teague and you may as well know right up front that I am obsessed with sterling silver.
I have been making sterling silver (and sometimes gold) jewelry for about 15 years. I am largely self taught (lots and lots of practice!) but have also taken classes with local and nationally known metal workers.
Originally from Arkansas I currently live and work in my adopted home state, Louisiana, where we regularly dodge hurricanes but enjoy the wonderful people and food here!
