This is taking a long time but it's starting to get longer.  Had to order more Preciosa beads.  Didn't realize how many beads this would take.  Ordered 1200 so now I have enough for a bracelet and earrings too.
Netting is great.  It makes the beads slinky and soft feeling where Herringbone would have made this necklace stiffer.  Click to see it bigger.


I just made my 100th pair of earrings for my friend at the nursing home.  She's a great sales lady.  She also asked for a bracelet and earrings to match.

This is the 10th pair of magenta I did.  They are polymer clay with wire wrapping and chains.

More requests for long and chunky turquoise.

The large beads are polymer clay made from a cane I did a while ago.  Wish I could remember what colors I used in it.  She requested a stretch bracelet with lots of silver.  I would not normally do it with stretch cord with that much silver but I used a 1mm size cord so it should be ok. 

25,000 GIVE AWAY

I will soon have the 25,000th visitor to my blog.

When that happens I am going to do a give away.  I'll be leaving for Chicago in two weeks for the wedding so I'm not sure when this give away will be or what I'm going to give away.  Leave me some comments and let me know what you would like (but not the netted necklace).  I'll be in a nursing home before I get another one of those done.  I need some ideas.  Earrings, bracelets, polymer clay pendants.  I'll keep thinking about it though.

Tomorrow is my birthday and I hope someone bought me red licorice.  That's what I usually get.  Or, a box of Good and Plenty.  Have to fit in the wedding outfit so I better go ride my bike.
