Phew! What a lot of work!
I finally finished with the uploading of each and every one of the 28 Lucky Charms I finished last Friday. I photographed them yesterday, then cropped and resized each photo, and today was uploading time. I still have a few things to tweak on the site I think, but so far so good. I thought I'd share a few of them on here with you, but if you wouldn't mind checking their page out on my site, and telling me if it's alright, or if it needs some changes, please let me know? :) Thanks! You can find them here.
Now, I'm really taking a chance with this last one, but I figured since M doesn't really come on this blog all that much, and I'll be seeing her tonight, it would be okay to share it with you. I made this crochet rope a few months back, and couldn't, for the life of me, find the perfect ends for it. Well, with all the moving around, and cleaning we've been doing lately, I've been finding some beads I completely forgot I had. Until I stumbled upon them once again that is... ;)
The rope is made with tiny size 12/0 matte black seed beads, which took what felt like an ETERNITY to complete. This is my first attempt at making my own clasp, such as this. I made a small pearl-embellished Peyote tube, that fit perfectly into that lovely little vintage wooden ring I salvaged off of a second-hand store find about 15 years ago! (ACK! I really AM getting old! LOL!)
I accented the ends with some angular wooden rondelles, peacock fresh water pearls, and some silver beads. I think she'll like it. It's simple, yet very classy, just like M. I keep thinking I should add maybe one more piece, but as I go through my little mental inventory of all of the pieces she's got already, I can picture this necklace going well with so many of them. :)
So, I'm gifting it to her tonight, over dinner at a nice Vietnamese restaurant.
