YOJ 2005 Week 42

The theme this week is "Art Noveau": I can't believe we are on week 42 already! Only ten more weeks to finish the entire year. What an incredible journey!

The piece for this week was a gift to a friend -- she picked out these very dark midnight blue agate stones from my stash:


These agate nuggets are unusual because they are naturally blue, not dyed, and were brought to me from Brazil by my mother, during her last visit.
