Dabbling with gems

I love the look of natural gemstones, so I am finally dabbling a bit with some. Here is a large iolite briolette that I wire wrapped and hung from some oxidized sterling components on a long chain. It definitely dresses up a white t-shirt! More to come. . .

The Ostrin Girls Turn 8!

This week, we celebrated Ronnie's 6th birthday,

and the next day, Lila's 2nd birthday.

Please, no more donuts, cupcakes, or other birthday pleasantries! I guess it's a good thing we won't be eating bread this week?

And don't worry, we celebrated Ben's un-birthday so he wouldn't feel left out!

The scene on UC Berkeley campus today.

Protesting something about cuts in education funding.

I think. . .

Well, somebody has to do it!

A productive weekend

A few new designs in the shop.

Good thing I got those out of my system, because I have a super busy week tracking the visual development of baby guinea pigs.
