Gorgeous colors in this antique chrysocolla pendant. Interesting that the stones are skillfully cut, polished and set into what appears to be silver plated metal. Very curious where this was made. Any ideas? #chrysocolla #vintagenecklace #turquoise #thecuriousbead #lapidary
I bought tomato plants at the farmers market from several different mom and pop vendors. I bought whatever they recommended without question. No tags so I don't even know the varieties but all winners! Especially the yellow and green striped ones, luscious! #tomatoes #heirloomtomatoes #homegarden #farmersmarket

Antique amber and silver filigree necklace. The amber beads vary from opaque yolk colored to translucent honey. The filigree beads are beautifully made with closed loops on each end. Old and worn and perfect! #oldamber #silverfiligree #ambernecklace #thecuriousbead #oldbeads
Antique screw apart enameled pomander from China. The globe screws apart to hold a bit of perfumed cloth. May be worn as a pendant or brooch. #thecuriousbead #vintageenamel #perfume #filigreejewelry
Found these wonderful old hoops in Romania! The wires are a bit heavy so I fiddled around and made them into dangle earrings. The gorgeous accent beads are also antique and found them in Romania too! Just listed in my earring shop audreyf on Etsy. #coralearrings #oldcoral #ethnographicjewelry #romania #audreyf #thecuriousbead
We get a few cukes and tomatoes from the garden but mostly we grow it for the bees and birds and butterflies. #bees #insectgarden #pollinators #naturephotography
Beautiful day, no wind. I hear a thump on the roof and go outside to find this! What does it mean? Practical Mother Nature joke? #wacky #trolled #marypoppins #curious #superstition

Finally strung up the clay mask and beads I made @4elementsstudio three years ago. I put it on as soon as I finished and this is what I saw in the mirror. I was wearing a #gratefuldead tshirt with #skeleton and roses artwork  by #stanleymouse. Kinda perfect. #mask #claybeads #thecuriousbead
Rained so hard today that I had to play at the bead table instead of the yard today! The FE pendant is vintage, I think from Italy.  FE reminds me of Fe, symbol for iron. When I was a kid I thought iron was the strongest thing in the world. It's strung with carnelians which btw gets it's color from iron oxide. Blue lace agate heart with beads I have been toting around for 25+ years. Antique mine/thine pendant with birds strung up with 100 year old coral beads. Will get these listed soon or contact me. #fe #victorianpendant #coralnecklace #agatenecklace  #thecuriousbead
