“Mermaid's Dream”

Description from ChickyD aka Debra: I picked up the mermaid pendant on sale in the BGBM and have been puzzling about how to use it. I knew I wanted to make a "Y" necklace. This afternoon, I suddenly knew exactly what to do. I've used it as a pendant with an LB 8 mm amethyst faceted round and teardrop abalone beneath it. I'm using ss chain pieces, square lavender pearls, LB pistachio pearls, lavender Swavorski crytals, and Thai Tribe silver spacers so far. I'll post a pic when it's finished. I have a fabulous ss toggle clasp w. marcasite that I've been saving. This may be just the time to use it!

    Wow! Sounds amazing! If the necklace looks anything like this magical pick it will be GORGEOUS!! Yes, please share pictures!!

    Thank you, Kitty Chicky Cat! I’ve been waiting for inspiration to hit, and it finally did. Everything is just seeming to flow….which does NOT happen very often. I’m really excited.

    Debra, I agree totally with Chicky Cat!!! The pick is gorgeous, the necklace sounds amazing, and we will require photos! LOL

    BTW, I think you’re right about the clasp, too — sounds perfect for this! :D

    Isn’t it funny how everything can just come together all at once like that? :D

  5. ChickyD aka Debra
    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    Yeah! I mean, it just suddenly hit me. I’m usually quite a dunce, but this time it just began to flow. Love it when that happens!

    Can’t wait to see the pics when you post them, Debra! This necklace is going to be gorgeous! It’s wonderful when inspiration hits, isn’t it?

    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    Yes, it is. I just doesn’t really happen that often to me. Thank you, Cotopaxi Chickie Sue!

    I love when the creative juices flow like that! I usually wake up with an idea in my head and have to at least get the beads out. ~ That explains my 5 am beading for those who think I’m obsessed. ;)

    Debra, these colors are stunning! Can’t wait to see the finished piece. The title is perfect too!

    I have such a hard time naming my picks…and now we need names for the design gallery too. aarrgh! LOL

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I KNOW!!! I want to take photos of my pieces and post them in the Design Gallery, but now I also have to name them, write a description, tell what inspired me to create it, possibly list instructions (which is MUCH harder than one might think), post what I ate for breakfast in the Fresh Daily Blog, etc. LOL Oh, and now I need to remember to leave comments on all the fabulously gorgeous pieces in the DG and, if I post photos, remember to check back and see if anyone commented on mine!!! Phew — that’s a lot of pressure for something I usually refer to as my “blue bracelet.” LOL

    Well – you may have noticed that my names are not very inspired – flourite fantasy, oh so soocho… How about that green thing with 2 strands? LOL

  11. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    That works for me!!! LOL I have the hardest time coming up with names for picks and designs. Oh, dear…… :-(

  12. ChickyD aka Debra
    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    Thanks, Jeanne!

    Yeah, I know what y’all mean! I just usually call stuff “my blue bracelet” or “the necklace with the skulls”. Not too good at coming up with names, either. I’m headed to the store today for some ss wire so I can finish up…ran out last night, and everything is connected with wire wraps.

  13. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Can’t wait to see it — once you give it a name, of course! LOL

    This is a beautiful combo, and I can’t wait to see the necklace! Sounds gorgeous!

    Gorgeous Pick, and Wow! I want to see the project! Pretty please? Just as soon as you make it, of course. ;)
    Ladies, we have to name them…somehow “Orphan Pick, or Orphan Necklace #5″ doesn’t make it sound loved… if you know what I mean. LOL
    I think I have orphan beads on the brain this AM, after cleaning up my studio last night…who knew I had so many orphans waiting around in trays, just waiting for a new home?

  17. ChickyD aka Debra
    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    Thanks, y’all. Worked on it some more tonight. It’s almost finished. I need more of the chain to finish it. Since it’s $24 per foot, I’m waiting until my Tuesday night class to buy it since I can get it for 20% off then. I don’t need much…probably 7 inches. Then I’ll finish it and post a pic. I’m really pleased with the way it looks so far.

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Looking forward to seeing it, Debra!

    BTW, I responded to your question about the rutilated quartz on Little Chick’s pick “Open a Window.”

    Finally finished the necklace!

    This is so beautiful, Debra! I saw it posted in the DG and commented on it and only later did I realize that this is the same necklace you had talked about on this pick! :D

  21. ChickyD aka Debra
    ChickyD aka Debra says:

    thanks, Lynn Eileen! I appreciate it. Hitting the sack now. Gotta finish a necklace and some earrings tomorrow….

    Good night!

    Good night, Debra! Sleep well and I’ll chat with you later! :D

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    OK, we’ll make them and Judi can name them! LOL :D
