icy mint triple pendant necklace: oxidized sterling, fluorite, recycled glass, beach glass

electric blue single pendant necklace: oxidized sterling,  plastic (this photo has shadows on the stone but it is a solid opaque blue)

i bought several squares of bright colored plastic sheet at an awesome hardware and craft store while we were in japan. this blue piece is the first piece i've made with any of my japan materials. i wish i could press a button and go back to that place and get a few more things. YES!!!! i think, if i remember right, the place had 8 floors. each floor was a different kind of "department" store. one was luggage (vividly remember that because i really wanted a bag there that i didn't buy....oops!! instead i bought colored plastic :O) washi paper tape, a thin long sleeved black shirt that was rated for cold cold weather (i about froze while we were there) and a christmas card for my grandma. art supplies, paper products and clothes all in one shopping zone....i was so in trouble :) that place was incredible. if i really could just press a button and go back to japan i would go back to:

-that many story shopping building and do some window shopping with a possible treasure or two

-the small town of higashiyama where we walked around the charming streets looking at amazing local pottery

-donq bakery for donq balls. well, that's what i called became one of the jokes of the trip. they were mostly like an old fashioned cake donut, but in donut hole form

-eat at the most incredible indian restuarant i've ever eaten at next to robert's apartment

-any little walk up place where i could have another cup of coffee-japanese-style (it was just different there, in a good way) or, to have another green tea ice cream.

-ride bikes around kyoto (although it made me so incredibly tired and i had no idea why)....i was about two weeks pregnant with baby luc at the time but we had no idea yet.

i know i could list tons more but my face is about to fall into the computer!!! nighty nite.
