Tiny rose brooch made by Maria Gower, London.
A simple pin of a pink rose that my mother gave my daughter.

"R" is not a rare letter. Today is already Thursday and once again it is almost too late to play Mrs. Denise Nesbitt's abc-Wednesday and Mrs. Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday.
The letter "R" is one of those letters that I have really been looking forward to. There are so many really interesting R-words. Looking at the animal kingdom, there are rabbits
or a rhesus monkey
Now I would like to show you something of the work of two other jewellery-artists whom I admire. Last week I featured some lovely quartz-items made by Karen Stahlecker. Karen has agreed to let me show a pair earrings that she made with rhodolite garnets.
This is Maria Gower
There are some R-words that I would like to add before we part: Russian dolls!
And since it is not the right time of year for roses, I would like to show you some wonderful rhododendon blooms from my neighbours' gardens:
Happy Rs to you all!
