And, now, for the just-for-fun-stuff! I promised a peek at the necklace I restrung the other day and here it is. I'm just SO into Autumn colors right now! I had originally taken a large silver dragonfly and wired it to a brushed gold colored leaf to use as the pendant. I tho't it looked great! (I love dragonflies so maybe this is why) Then I started getting comments about how it looked like a marijuana leaf! (GAH!) I didn't take the first one seriously because of who said it (they're the kind to say things for shock or effect) but, when my own dad said it, I figured it was time to make a change. I didn't know to what until I found this adorbs! owl! I loved how the colors just went with the beads, pearls and crystals I had originally strung. This will also be going into my Etsy store after I get some shots this weekend (this was just done with my iPhone... mmmmnot TOO bad, eh?) I'm calling it Fall Forest (I'm not kidding about the whole Autumn/Fall obsession-thing!)
