    So………. Let’s see here…….. are you trying to say, you don’t like “STAMPT COPPER (plated) FILIGREE?????? hmmmmmm, I think that’s the feeling I’m getting here!!!!

    KPJEWELS says:

    I don’t care for any of the metals much. I’m not good at figuring out how to use them to the best advantage, if you know what I mean.

    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Let’s see…………. You have problems using metal stuff……….. Yeah, I think I know!!! LOL……….. Sorry for being silly!!!!

    KPJEWELS says:

    It wouldn’t be you if you weren’t silly now and again. Yes, I really do have problems with the metal stuff. Thanks.

    This makes me think of a big doily! That’s ok 3K Chick…I like doilies!

    They look lovely, but I’m not sure what to do with them either. I have used Vintaj brass used to wrap around a stone – it’s very pretty. Otherwise I’m at a loss, especially with the wings.

    KPJEWELS says:

    Thanks Lori. Maybe somebody can give us a tutorial on filigree.??????

    I LOVE filigree!! And I’d really LOVE to see how you use it to wrap a stone!!!

  9. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    I agree about the wings!! I think the wings are kind of wierd!! But, I’m sure there’s someone out there that loves them & knows what to do with them!!!!lol……

    Kitty Chicky, I will take a couple photos, but probably won’t get them posted for a while. (later tonight or tomorrow) Wonder where they are…???

    not to worry, L.B. has lotsa other stuff that you can enjoy, we all have beads that we’re not fond of!!! :) sorta like food… I’m not crazy about bean sprouts even though I’ll eat ‘em when they pop up in chinese food… and other folks think I’m weird cuz I AM Chinese American!!! :)

    Lori Z, that is awesome! I must show my ignorance here! I always thought, hmm..pretty pieces, but I never knew that was what they were for!

    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    Unfortunately, I must now have some. Think this is what LB had in mind when they created Fresh Pick Chat? Nah, I’m sure they expected more discussion on underwear…tee, hee

    Oooh Lori…that’s a gorgeous necklace! Love the colors :)

    Those wings are pretty…maybe as a scrapbook embelishment…not too sure on jewelry though….

  18. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Thanks Plucky! Not ignorant at all, I saw someone else do it with a big chunk of turquoise – or I never would have figured this out.

    Dichroic nugget challenge? Or are we limited to one challenge a day? I’ve GOT to step away from here eventually! Must….stop….browsing..Ooh,shiny thing!

    O MY GOSH!! FANTASTIC!! WOW!!!

  21. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Thanks Michelle – never finished the necklace! Had forgotten about it till now. I have a hard time knowing if I’ve stopped too soon or not soon enough!

    Lori Z,

    How did you wrap the vintaj brass around stones… is that what you did in these examples you show… love them all, so gorgeous!!!!! :)

  23. KPJEWELS
    KPJEWELS says:

    Thanks for the lovely pics of your necklaces Lori. What a fantastic idea. I love it. I never ever dreamed that they could be used in this way. Many, many thanks. I will certainly have to get some filigree pieces and try this. I’m flabbergasted. The wings I have seen used in a necklace. If I can find a pic, I will share it.

  24. Michelle Downy Chick
    Michelle Downy Chick says:

    Plucky…lol…I feel your pain…you try to leave, but are eventually sucked back not too long after!

  25. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Yeah, if they’d announced dichroic glass I would have gone ape. I’m in serious trouble when silver gets here. I sympathize Plucky, more more more…!

    Ok, thanks for your empathy, chickies! I am really going to go now and I will reward myself with returning after midnight (2am LB time).

  27. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    3KJewels, now you all are making me twitch – gotta get some and try more! It was guess & by gosh to wrap these. Make sure the filigree piece is plenty big. I kind of wish the wrap would have extended further in front. I used the nylon jaw pliers to make gentle bends all the way around, then gradually tighten them up. Another trick is to figure out how to attach a bail or loop to make the pendant. Make sure you do that before getting the top too tight!

    CAS says:

    The only things I can think of for using those funky Wing shapes are as chandelier earrings or as a way to go from single to double strands.

    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    I think it would look cool to have the decoration part in the front if you could see the stone well enough through the filigree

  30. KPJEWELS
    KPJEWELS says:

    Again, many, many thanks for your brilliance. I’m off to bed now. See you all tomorrow.

    Earrings w/the wings, CAS – never thought of it…… cool!

    CAS, (my Chicky Babe) your sooo brilliant, as usual!!!lol…….

    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    G’night! Like the winged earrings too! Great ideas here!

  35. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Plucky, I agree with the peek-a-boo idea for the stone. I like how it looks on the sodalite, but I couldn’t get myself to cover the glass – it hid too much.

  36. No Photo
    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    might cover too much of the stone, too. hmmmm.

    Lori, Love the necklaces. Something I always wanted to do but never got around to it, guess I better get busy.
