I made these earrings using the tip of my dog's tail because it was the only fur on his body that was long enough to cut and use.
Then I thought, what a coincidence that dogs use their tails and ears to express themselves. And people use jewelry to express their personalities.
So I made the earrings, and now I'm finally making the matching necklace. Using carefully cut segments of my Milo's tail, I'll be filling the links posted below.
This is a picture that Mike took on a fishing trip in the lower Niagara river. Somebody is in the process of catching a fish- as you can see from the bent fishing rod. I'm not sure who the fisherman is.
Fishing in the lower Niagara is a blast. I didn't go on this particular trip, but I've been out there in the cold several times and it is always a good time.

I used the bristle disks on my flex shaft to clean up the slowly progressing polka-dot jasper necklace links. The picture below is the pendant arranged under the links. (I was just playing with the links, they'll actually form a necklace when they're ready.)
