New Cuff set & Earrings & Turtle Charm! Macarons,.

okay okay okay.

So first, I wanted to share my experience with making macarons... using egg whites that have not been aged...

I nuked them for 5 seconds at a time, for 20 seconds, in the microwave to speed up the aging process. Otherwise, the whites came straight out of the fridge, newly separated from the yolks.

I can't say they're perfect, but good enough to use.

The feed spread apart SO much during cooking, but the texture of the cookie was really right on.
I sandwiched them with lemon curd, and brought them to work. They were delicious.







And I made new earrings:

Large, beautiful, sterling silver leaves :)

And another one of a kind cuff set!


AAND... brought back a beaded turtle :D


Enjoy the photos of the goodies :)

Until next time!
