Here are the photos... aren't they great?

Ring by denlm   Ring Photos by denlm

Apparently it takes mail two months or thereabouts to crawl from Estonia to Luna Pier, Michigan in the US. But it was well worth the wait. I have my two shiny new rings from :iconmithgariel:!!! I would show you all, but (gulp) I do not own a digital camera... nor a phone that takes pictures. Yes, yes, I am a dinosaur. Just ask :iconlunaticstar:. She has verbally tucked me into an old folks home numerous times. Still, I can appreciate pretty jewelry and fine craftsmanship, even if I am old and decrepit. Thanks, Diana. These rock! :hug:

Tyrannosaurus! With bat wings and a smirking snout.
If you remind me WHICH rings I sent you I'm sure I have pictures of them lying around somewhere. Might not be in the gallery because I lately took down everything that ain't currently for sale to avoid confusion.

One had lovely pink stones that I thought from your original photos were amethyst. The other has a red stone on each end that wrap around to meet in the front.

You can upload them to your scraps and then put thumbs into the journal?

:hug: Naw, you're not a dinosaur, people just forget that reality can exist without shiny new technological wizardry. You're not the only one who is low tech. :3

The thing about cell phones for me is: I carry a basic one for emergencies, but I would rather not have people able to reach me anytime and anywhere. I like my solitude. And I used to take lots of photos until it became such a hassle filing and saving them. I leave all that to my daughter now. Gives me more time to write.

:giggle: That's pretty much why I don't post up photography any more... too busy writing.. and it's so much hassle with a digital. And my cell is only used for txts and emergency phone calls as well. Hate how obnoxious it seems when someone answers their phone in a store or something :no: My phone only does txt messages and the occasional phone call... I actually mostly only use it because it has sudoku on it - something for me to do when I'm waiting for a bus or something :giggle: <3

I saw her gallery.Holy smokes are you lucky! What gems were they?
And you are NOT a dinosaur. Maybe an apteryx, a flightless bird with hairy feathers...but not a dinosaur. :).
Yes mail coming from the other way to North America can be quite slow. When I used to do Swap Bot and had South American partners or folks from Israel, it was quite often 2 months.

I send a lot of books overseas, and they almost all get there in under 3 weeks, by standard shipping. But my recent book to New Zealand broke the record. Over 8 weeks!

One of the gems is a pink something-or-other, the other has two red shiny thingies. Lol. I have no clue, as you can see. They are marvelous though.

I see you got yours too! I suspect mine was held up by the massive snowfall in Estonia at the time she mailed it, and was then probably trapped in a New England Post Office during the U.S. blizzards of the last few weeks.

I have to be so discriminating on here. dA artists create some amazingly original pieces. I'd go broke if I bought even 1/10 of everything I like!

Congratulations! And if not having those items makes one a dinosaur, sign me up for the Cretacious tour. (Okay, we now have a phone and a Nintendo DS that take digital pictures of questionable quality, but those belong to wolfshine!)

She may still have photos of the ones she sent me on her dA page. I'll go look and see if I can post the link. Thanks for the tip.

Thank you, ma'am! I love the things I find on dA... like illustrations of hot men with dark skin and long white hair. I am looking at that right now. Lol.
