Happy Weekend

Once I sat down at the beading table, I couldn't help but get into a flow and then before I knew it I had beaded all day long. I love it and hate it when that happens. It means my house didn't get cleaned, the cat was ignored, the husband was ignored even more. I had to be pulled from the room to make dinner and now it's already 8pm and I am JUST blogging now.

whew.

But I wanted to show you a few things.  Here is the necklace that came from Thurs? post where I had you vote for your favorite design. I decided to combine I and J together into the final piece. I am quite happy with how it turned out. I think you were right about the chain, and about the keyhole, and then I found an itty bitty skeleton key to add below the house with some other charms. The Love bead, nuggets and house bead work so well together. I wonder if Diane meant to do this??

I also wanted to show you the finished product from my collaboration with KJ. Did you see KJ's finished piece that I had started for her? Click here to view that. And then here is the piece she sent me. And now here is the necklace all finished. I must admit I didn't do much to it. I just tied  some knots into the silk cording, adding wire wrapped mokaite nuggets that she sent, I added some copper chain, a copper clasp from Miss Fickle Media, and some of Shannon's rings, and the little yellow owl from Floridity that KJ sent with the package. I like simple designs that aren't too tight, or two heavy. This is just right!! I can't wait to wear it on Monday!

  9. I just love how it turned out! I knew that owl wanted to be in that necklace, but I wasn't quite sure where to place him so I'm glad I mailed him to you and let you work your magic to figure it out. Great job!

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
