A couple of months ago, I went to visit a dear friend in Seattle, and in one of the trendy downtown shops, we saw a necklace that she fell in love with . . . "I can make one just like that, I have all the 'stuff' " I said . . . what was I thinkin'? Just so we are clear, I 'do not make jewelry', but this was really fun, and it turned out great!

I found a great silver-chain belt, and I started attaching 'stuff ': chandelier crystals, a sliver cross I bought in South Africa, a sewing machine bobbin (with thread), keys, a keyhole, a vintage optical lens and tiny silver charms from a bracelet.
I put it in the mail today - she should be getting it soon. . . .
