Why hello, doily

A quick post-and-run here... I just had to share these paper-thin (OK, more like 0.05mm) lacy filigree teardrops with you - and what's more, all of them are matte!

Ferngully, a chrysoprase necklace

O, chrysoprase. You're another one of those things whose colour a digital camera usually has problems reproducing.
