    Not surprised to find the infamous peach pits in this pick LOL as for me, the sugar skull is just so cute, I would use dyed magnesite flat disks in rainbow colors with chain in a wire wrap combo in an asymeticral(sp?) chain necklace as a “Day of the Dead” necklace. And the Lapis cab which I want so bad, I would do a Lisa Barth wire woven bezel (see this link )

    Thanks for the skull and lapis tips. I’ll be sure to check out the tutorial — I’m always into expanding what I can do.

    I love the sugar skull, don’t have it yet but it is in my wish list. As a goth chick, I’ll know what to do with it :-) Use it in a black design, that for sure!

    I don’t know why a person would want anything to do with macabre images. But the peach pits have possibility.

    I like the natural look of the Vintaj woodland brass toggle, but I can’t seem to get beyond the, how shall I say it, “anatomical” look of it. Paging Dr. Freud!

    I’m with you — the toggle to me looks a little to Sapphic or something. Even so, I’d love to see somebody use it well.

    Aqua Chickie Cat — what would you DO with the peach pits? I’m stumped.

    gee, thanks you two, now I cannot use that toggle either LOL, too funny :) I’m glad the ball is rolling on these comments. I would wear the angry man as earrings on a bad hair day :D

    I have “top secret” notebook page of ideas for the peach pits.

    OMG! I sooooo have to get that toggle now!! :D All the skulls and macabre stuff I could SO work with, all kinds of gothic oriented pieces come to mind. I’ve not done it, bit I think those triangular fwps could make a pretty rockin choker, with the addition of the right beads, and/or fwps, of a different color of course. The black onyx matte I can visualize teamed with coral rounds, snowflake obsidian, and maybe a black rose pendant. Hae to think on the others, the peach pits though, might be pretty cool with really brightly colored beads, clashing if possible, strung on elastic as a fun kids bracelet or necklace.

    Wishingstone, thanks for a really thought provoking Pick, I’m LMAO at the comments here about that vintaj woodland clasp…
    too bad LB doesn’t have that lil’ fairy sprite charm right now, or I would make a fairy woodland piece of some kind…
    the black matte beads, biwa triangles and maidenhair tresses are puzzling to me… likewise w/ the cute lil’ peach pits and octagon artistic jasper donut!! :)

    Maidenhair tresses easily become a hair barrette.

    It’s been a few days now, and I’ve laughed REALLY hard whenever I thought of this pick. Mostly I’m still baffled… and amused.

    Ha ha, I have used the Vintaj toggle in a bracelet with woodland colours of soft green and purple & coppery brown. Now I will see that toggle in a new way … :)
