dragonflies


A set was ordered and is now finished for a sweet young lady. She loves dragonflies, so I thought these would please her. I cut an 18" length of sterling silver chain, adding a small spring clasp for closure. After I sprinkled on a couple of potato pearls, I wire wrapped 4- 6 mm swarovski crystal bicones onto the chain.
Simple earrings were then made using the matching dragonflies. But, I always have to make more. An additional pair of pearls and swarovski crystals ~ just for fun.
These will be delivered tomorrow night.
(Psst....Colette, do you see the pretty little box and my sweet little birdie watching in the background)?

Came back to answer your questions. Yes, I still buy Clay Aiken's CD's and this year David Cook has been my favorite since the tryouts! I don't have a favorite girl although I liked the Filipino girl earlier but can't remember her name. I will have to check out yoru jewelry site one day and I didn't know you also stamped cards! Do you have them online? I have mine on a yahoo group blog. I've been doing it just over three years.
