Day 44 of 2013 ... Feb, 13th
The other day I mentioned I was sitting here making a necklace and I would have it finished in a day or 2 because I was going to redo it to make it alittle longer so it will just slip over the head. It's finished. I like the way it turned out. I did redo it to make it fit over the head without using a clasp. I did go ahead and put a clasp on it to finish it out. It lays about mid chest which is a nice length. Turquoise in color and made with imitation turquoise beads. Oval puff beads and small round beads. The small round beads are the imitation turquoise and the puff oval beads are called bead chalk turquoise.
I took several pictures to show you how nice it turned out. I will use these pictures when I list it in my jewelry shop on etsy. Here are a few pictures
I took the pictures of me wearing the necklace with my iPad. This was more difficult than I thought it would be and it makes my boobs look like they go on forever ... towards the ground .... well I don't tote them around with a wheelbarrow. I edited the pictures to show more of the necklace and less of the boobs and neck, there was several chins in the pictures also.
The pictures aren't great but it does show how long the necklace is and that is what I wanted. It does show how long the necklace is, doesn't it?
I think I have enough beads to make a matching bracelet or earrings but probably not both unless I get on the floor and find the beads I dropped. That's the job I make seem exciting when the grandkids are here. Yep I have read Mark Twain and the white washing is a standard among grandparents to old and tired to bend and sit on the floor. So Molly, Lilly and Ireland ... I need a visit from you soon ... these beads are not picking themselves up you know. Good quality time, that's what it is ... good quality time ... LOL.
Well I hope you enjoyed reading today's blog. Most of you missed yesterday's blog, the page views did not increase by much.

Welcome To What's Up With Me!!
This year I want to get personal, to just talk, I have used my blog for business for so long I have grown tired of trying to keep it up dated. SOOOOOO I thought I would give you pieces of my mind ... LOL little pieces at a time.
Now I will from time to time show you what's new in my etsy.com shop but mostly I just want to relax, unwind or get uptight whatever the day brings. But now I'm going to put into words what I'm thinking, what I'm going through, what I'm happy about.
This may become therapy, way cheaper this way!!!
