You Are A Total Shopaholic!

You have a keen eye for spotting trends before they are hot
And sometimes your credit rating takes a beating as a result
Consider a job in retail to subsidize your gorgeous outfits
Over time, you could become a famous stylist or designer!

Out on the Beach

This is another necklace I made while here in Florida. I love this one. I went through a major aqua phase this summer and this necklace went with everything. Unfortunately, this is the first necklace Josh broke. It's still in the repair pile.

Ingredients: Shell pendant, Swarovski crystals, Czech firepolish, tri-cut seed beads, silver colored copper wire, Beadalon beading wire, crimp beads and sterling silver lobster clasp.

Nothing to do with creativity...

You Passed 8th Grade Science

Congratulations, you got 8/8 correct!

I hated science as a kid. (Go figure, my dad's a physician, but my mom's an artist) I hated science in high school. I scored a 9 on the science part of the ACT when the rest of my scores were in the high 20's. At least I passed this quiz. I was sweating bullets.

Tornado Pendant

I probably stayed up way too late last night finishing this. I got Lisa Niven Kelly's Tornado Toggle kit. This was the "practice" piece I made from copper wire before I splurge and use the sterling siver wire. I will probably use this on a necklace with lots of other dangley components in the purple family.

I am such a chicken when it comes to sterling. I have some, but have yet to do a project with it. I've made some pieces that I wish I did in silver.
