And finally, here is the last picture. My wife took a set that had a focal bead and a few smaller "filler" beads and made a bracelet, using silver wire, out of my beads - wow, I am SO delighted!!!!! I am going to pull a surprise dinner for her I am SO happy! I did wonder what all the hammering noise was out in the workroom...lol.

Wow Rich, look at all the techniques you're mastering, that is really wonderful. I love your sense of color..and totally jealous that your wife can take her talent and put the icing on the cake.. they look sensational.

I really love the wire wrap she did on the jade or green color bead.

Great job!! I haven't even attempted a frog yet.. You should be very proud!!

Rich - you are a bead machine! Only 4 1/2 months of doing beads and you are completing sets and your wife is making jewelry! How neat is that! Lets see I think the only thing I accomplished in the first four months was a bunch of very strange beads and alot of burned fingers - oh and the loss of one eye brow...

I can't wait to see what you will be doing in 8 months because you are certainly mastering the art - and I love the fact that you and your wife are sharing the whole experience - that is so touching.

Great stuff again Rich :clap: I'm impressed to see a froggie in there after only 4.5 months!! It took me a really long time to venture out of "round" :p

And I agree with the others who said how nice it is to see that you two are sharing this together. A surprise dinner . .. .. . <heavy sigh>!!
