    Yay! oh it is Seuss (spelling) thanks

  4. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    I had to look Dr. Seuss up to refresh my memory about his characters and stories! It’s been awhile since I’ve had to read them. They’re the best! :-)

    Hi Smoky Rose Chick, how’s it going today? Good I hope! Thanks…Bubbly Chick got me thinking of Dr. Seuss and I can’t stop…..

    Can you do Fox in socks, or is that too hard with out the fox?

  10. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    I’m great! Went to our local Walmart (that’s the best place there is in town) for some supplies and started creating… slowly. I’m new at this but I watched some video on other sites about how to go about it and I ended up making 3 pieces! I’m quite proud of myself! They are very simple but they are a start. :-)

  11. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Fantastic! Congratulations! I’m glad for you. Once you’ve got some of the basics down, sky is the limit! :) – and on your pick day, too. Cool stuff, Elaine!

  12. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Thanks :-)

  13. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Oh…oh! I guess that means I’m really hooked, eh?!

  14. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    are you going to wear one of the pieces tomorrow?

  15. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    I have nowhere to go, but I might just wear it around the house. It’s been awhile since I’ve worn much jewelery of any kind because of my previous job so I’ve kinda got away from wearing much. But I’ll have to start again.

  16. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    if you’re considering wearing it tomorrow – especially if you have nowhere to go, then the answer is YES! you’re hooked! ahhhhhh I remember my first necklace and bracelet……. :)

    I never wore much because of metal sensitivities – I am strictly white metal – although I do play with the metal pieces here – if they’re smaller than the beads, or will land onto clothes vs bare skin, then I’m going for it! again, long story short, I wear jewelry every single day anymore.

  17. Karen H aka Fancy Chick
    Karen H aka Fancy Chick says:

    My motto: jewelry goes with everything! It makes us feel good. I’ll wear crystals with blue jeans anytime!

  18. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    you got it, K – we were saying that earlier too. it’s cool to live in this fashion age – pearls with jeans, facetted stones with jeans, crystals – we don’t have to wait for special anymore.
    I gave my mom an aquamarine 3 stone ring for her birthday a few years back. she loves it. she cried. she wears it a few times per year – ooh, don’t want to ruin it, I’ll keep it for special. no, wear and enjoy – if it gets ‘ruined’, we’ll get it fixed.

  19. Karen H aka Fancy Chick
    Karen H aka Fancy Chick says:

    absolutely!

  20. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Well ladies, I have made my mind up that I will definitely start wearing it all the time. I mean really, what’s the point of working with all of these gorgeous stones if I’m not going to wear them! I don’t have any plans on selling them (right now anyway) so they are strictly for me! :-) Smoky Rose Chick, I am very lucky that I have no sensitivities at all but I know a lot of people do; my daughter is one that has to wear precious metals or she ends up with a rash or her ears get infected, etc.

  21. Karen H aka Fancy Chick
    Karen H aka Fancy Chick says:

    I had no intention of selling mine either when I got started. Just for me. But then everyone saw my stuff and suddenly I was selling and making like crazy. Mostly I make for me because I love it, but make lots of duplicates to sell or for friends or I make specific, commissioned pieces. Your hobby will grow faster than you can imagine because it is an extension of yourself.

  22. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    Good, Elaine! so what colors/stones are your 3 new pieces.

    yeah, it’s a bear – my folks gave me some nice yellow gold pieces when I was younger – not a ton – we grew up modestly. I itch and get an awful rash. I wanted to wear a wedding band – didn’t know what to do – we bought a cheapy white gold, thin band at walmart well, well in advance of the wedding that I wore on a non-ring finger as an experiment. it worked. my set is white gold.

  23. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    I have one in the Easter Egg Hunt Lapis gift with silver-toned carved metal rice and clear beads between; plum dancing drops with silver-toned flowers and a violet twisted oval as a drop in the front; and Ruby Zoisite rondelles with shiny silver spirals. If I get brave later on, maybe I’ll send a picture of them. The beading wire sure beats the heck out of the thread that we used to bead with when we were teenagers! :-)

  24. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Mmmm…Fox in Socks…I’ll have to think about that one. :-)

  25. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Smoky Rose Chick, my set is white gold as well. I’m a nut about silver for anything. I’ve never felt very comfortable in gold; I’m not sure why. Although, because of LB, I’m beginning to love the brass! :-)

  26. Smoky Rose
    Smoky Rose says:

    maybe your coloring – my coloring lends better to white metal, so that worked out well. I loooove silver, too
    - and yeah, love the brass – again, just careful with the placement so that it doesn’t directly touch my skin. never would have thought of brass till LB

  27. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Yep, it probably is my coloring; it’s funny sometimes how we instinctively know what works best! Thanks Smoky Rose Chick and KPH for your encouragement! :-)

  28. Kitty Chicky Cat
    Kitty Chicky Cat says:

    I LOVE Dr. Seuss and the cat in the hat!! Fun pick!
