a) a new dress, and
b) a new jewelry set
To be worn to Queen's Champion this Saturday. Pics forthcoming! In the meantime...
It's nice and simple as a stand-alone dress; and will also make a great under-layer for a sideless or houppelande, pulled up over a much nicer under-dress or under-skirt, or just accessorized with nifty belts, hats, hoods, tippets, capes, etc.

The jewelry is gold, with glass "citrine" briolettes (harvested from an old pair of earrings), and small cream-colored pearls...
|Sapphire & Sage|
The necklace is shaped somewhat like this; instead of a "chain" of pearls as a foundation (and for the loopy bits between the decorative drops, too), I used a plain gold chain, with drops made of glass "citrine" and pearls instead of the set red cabochons/pearls that you see here.
I'll get pics this weekend while I'm in it. :)
So, that, when next we meet - and also (I hope) some info about my local Clothiers' Guild, and a competition entry!
