:rolleyes: i just can't stop doing these garden thingies. nancy, you were right - very addictive!!

so this time i'm going to try doing a necklace. yep, i MUST be nuts. i'm not going to put doodads all the way around the neck, just on the front part of the piece. but the rest of it will be a multi-strand thing so it will be thick like the garden part. i don't know when i'm going to have time to work on it, because i'm going to be focusing on my collaboration piece for mary. but i did get started - i strung the base of the garden portion, and gathered up a bunch of materials from my stash. here are pix of what i'll be working with. sheesh, wish me luck! (and no, i'm really not a lush - heck, i have a glass of wine maybe once in 6 months and that's it.)

I can't wait to see the progress! I think it's going to be a really pretty necklace! Being a lush in the garden must be a good thing for you. :evil:

Hi Shirley. Yeah, thanks for doing a WIP. I really want to see how everyone works. How people put the end cappy things on ( LOL. see why I need help ?) How they are put together, etc.

Thanks !

um, yes... in my former life as a software developer, we called those sorts of words "technical terms". :D (used 'em all the time!)

oh boy, the rio catalog... you're in trouble now! :clap:

Shirley, Unakite, yum - and those lampwork beads they are just fantastic. Did you make them, you are so talented. Lots of other do-dahs, uh beads too. :)

These things really are an adventure. Each one is so different. Thanks for starting this thread.
