YEA HOO! REVEAL DAY IS HERE!!!


     This is what I started with from my awesome blog partner Tracey A Beadiful Mess and here is what I made...



   
     I added to my mix some copper beadcaps, silk ribbon and copper wire.  The bead colors that Tracey sent me were very easy to work with because copper and green earthy tones are my favorite.  I loved the toggle she sent me but I didn't want it hidden so I used it to hang the pendant.  I thought about wire wrapping the pendant but the design was so nice I didn't want it covered.  Using the ribbon as the clasp makes it so you can adjust the length which is really cool I think.  

    I want to thank you for visiting my blog and here is a long list of many others to visit.  I also want to thank Lori Anderson of Pretty Things  for the privilege of participating in this GREAT BLOG PARTY :) and of course thank you to my partner Tracey.  If for any reason the list isn't clickable just click on Lori's link above.

  25. I am SO sorry for being late -- today our internet provider decided to crash. My stress level is through the roof, to say the least! They're still working on it, but it's like dial-up.

    I LOVE it! Clasps at the front are awesome, especially when they're so pretty. I normally don't wear these colors but I would with this piece! Most excellent job, and I hope you'll join again next time!

    Love, Lori
