I had to hog a thread to show off the lariat I just finished! It's the first time I saw something in my head and had it turn out even better that I had imagined! I don't know you guys... I feel like I'm moving in a whole new direction! And my buddy Libby had a big part in that happening! SMOOCH! (Thanks for looking!!) :D

Hey Lady, Beautiful!!

It is VERY pretty and happy colored!

I have a question though....how does one WEAR a lariat? Am I a dork? I don't get how you fasten it on your neck so it does not fall off.

Very lovely!

Thanks all!! Here's a picture of it on my neck so you can see how it works Nancy......

Very nice! Great mixture of color and texture!

So you a jewelry addict now!

Why is all this stuff addictive?

First there's stained glass, then lampwork,beads which makes you a jewelry nut, and forces you to get a kiln which makes you want to fuse, then dichroic screams your name, then you want to wire wrap, and while you play with kiln the stained glass calls to you, which makes you want to make more beads too, and string more jewelry. It's a never ending cycle .... being drawn into the whirlpool of glass addiction....

Oh Yeah! That's my kind of necklace fun! It came out great and I love the leaves! Is that Hill Tribe silver? Boy I can't wait 'til you come over to play!

Nancy B - You can also just tie it loosely if you want it longer!

Isn't that the very best, most exciting feeling?

Nancy, it is lovely....congratulations on seeing the possibilities open up...!!!

What is going on up there in the thawing tundra of Michigan that my bead buds are all leaping and zipping onto new and amazing heights of talent lately? THAT IS WONDERFUL! No wonder you are so pleased.

Geez, I have such creative friends....
