    Kitty Chicky Cat says:

    Anita, I know how you feel! I miss all of you when I don’t hear from you! My best friend lives in another state. I don’t know when I’ll get to see her and hug her in person again but I can still talk to her and love her from afar. And I know that she’s thinking of me and misses me too. Friends unseen are seen with the eyes of the heart (or something like that). Beautiful, bright necklace, I’m honored! e-hugs!!!

    You guy’s (LADIES) are great!!!!!! This is my favorite place to be, when I can’t be with the rest of my friends, I’ve got you, my (invisable friends) many times, the best!!!!!!!!! By the way, I’ve eaten several brownies!!!!!LOL

  13. CAS
    CAS says:

    I made some brownies thinking of you (I shared with Mom & Dad), and I raise a brownie in your honor. Feel better *Groovy Chick*, tomorrow is another day (don’t forget to set your clocks ahead).

    I agree Anita, sometimes the best friends are the ones you can’t even see. Hope you feel better! HUG! (I want a brownie now, but we don’t have any, so I’ll have to make due!!!???) :)

    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Hey! We just got back about a half-hour ago! It was really fun! The only problem was that when we went to a restaurant around 1:30pm and right when we were about to order, they took down exactly what I had wanted to order. So they said we could come back in about an hour and they’d have it. So we kinda walked around stores, and then went back. Then we got to eat around 4pm (by then I was starving). Well, at least it was worth it (and was funny in a weird way)! :)

    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Boy, how do you rate!! They whipped up some-more just for you!!!!!! Don’t you hate it when you are tooo hungry!!!! Did you pick out your birthday present? did- you-huh-did-you ??

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    Yes, by the time we sat down and ate, my stomach had been growling at me!!! Yep! I got a pair of shoes, a few shirts (greens & blues mostly), CD, & a book on more “advanced” wire work. Because I’m already doing beginner & have a few earring designs, but I wanted to do more “advanced” stuff! By the way the next few sentences have nothing to do with all of the above…since I’ve been making jewelry, I do something harder & more “advanced” every year. Like last year ’08 I made Christmas tree ornaments (along with everything else). This year ’09 I’m doing wire work. Maybe next year I’ll work with donuts (something I reallyyy want to do). By the way, I’m pretty sure that was the LONGEST comment I’ve written yet! Hope it’s understandable…

    Nicole, I would love to see some pictures of the Christmas ornaments that you made. Glad that you had a good time shopping!

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    Thanks! Ok, I’ll work on that! I used to have some, but we’ve had several “problems” with our computer, where it completely shuts down & loses everything. So they too were deleted. :(

    PS. They’re mostly “snowflake” shaped. Although I did have angels & flower-like drops…

  22. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Nicole, that’s exactly the way to do it!!! I continue to challenge myself!!! When your old enough, you will be able to take some really exciting classes, with some renowned teachers!!!! All the big bead shows have them!!!! Mean-while, keep learning anything you can on your own…..And yes, it was very clear & understandable!!!!!

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    Ok good! I proof-read it a few times. The first time I did a craft show, I met someone who had been beading for years. She taught me how to make wire-wrapped bead trees. So I know how to do that. What I find confusing is, I’ve noticed that some designers at big craft fairs have necklaces that have flowers made up of maybe 5 oval beads all wired together (with a beaded center). It looks cool, but I just can’t figure out how to do that now, without it looking a little sloppy! I’ve searched the internet & I asked the lady at the craft show if she knew, and she didn’t. So if anybody here knows what I’m talking about, please can you give me a hint??? :)

    Happy birthday Nicole! I love wirework! I’d love to see some of yours Nicole!!, if you can get your computer to behave. But trust me, I understand! I’ve had more than my fair share of computers crash on me or go so worthless that I wish they would just die already and get it over with so I could get a new one! Annnywayyy, now that I done ranting… ;)

    Thanks Kitty! I’m pretty sure that I can get you a very simple all-wire pair of earrings that I did. I don’t have pictures of the more advanced ones. :(

    Beautiful earrings Nicole. I’ve never done wire work…is it difficult to learn?

  34. Classy Chick JbyJill
    Classy Chick JbyJill says:

    Nicole, those earrings are beautiful!! What gauge of wire did you use? I know the pendant you are talking about… I made one quite some time ago. I’ll see if I can post a pic. I think I used beading wire….But I will try to remember and get back at ya…..Jill

  35. Classy Chick JbyJill
    Classy Chick JbyJill says:

    Nicole, OK Here is a picture. I’m afraid it is not very good. I had to crop it out of a display picture I had. Is this what you are talking about?

    I love that flower Jill. What a great way to use the ovals.

    Anita the chocolate was delightful! and well needed.

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    Thanks girls! Yes, Jill that’s what I’m talking about! I think that I used 18 gauge wire. It’s not really hard to learn, the trick is to make the same thing twice (like for earrings).!

    Hey Jill – I checked out the video, very instructive. Nicole you shouldn’t have any trouble making the pendant.

  44. Classy Chick JbyJill
    Classy Chick JbyJill says:

    These videos are awesome, very informative:) On another note, does anyone have an Etsy account? Or another forum that is similar? I have been contemplating putting my jewelry on Etsy, but was wondering if I wanted to put in the time to do it. Do you think it is worth it? I would love to hear what you think!

    Jill, my friend who is an artist has her paintings there and pushing me to do the same with the paintings and jewelry.
    She is happy but, I am like you :contemplating… I tis very good to have a link to your website if you have one. I do not and so…

  47. Classy Chick JbyJill
    Classy Chick JbyJill says:

    I don’t have a website….. So I thought this might be an alternative. I have had a lot of people ask me if I have my jewelry online… Just trying to weigh my options:)

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    I don’t think you need a website. That’s the point of Etsy – but you’ll have to decide if it’s worth the fees and the time to ship.
