    Wonderfully neat! And those white and red flowers look very Chinese.
    I had one too

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “PC and Leather Bracelet”   13 hours, 45 minutes ago

    Such a fun everyday bracelet, certain to make you feel creative again! Hope you’re feeling better, and will find the time to do some jewelry again!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “A few designs made with LB products”   13 hours, 51 minutes ago

    These are all just so exquisite! I just love the second last pair, with that chain detail. Think I’ll have to bookmark this in faves, to come back to when I have more time… The photos are real good too!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “The forever necklace!”   14 hours ago

    That necklace is amazing! Love everything about it, and that pendant is mesmerizing! Yes, I recognize myself a lot in what you say, me too feel like I’m searching for how to continue this, wondering how long I will do it. And like Asia, the more I do, the more ideas I get, and I’d love [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Beaded Hemp Tassel Earrings”   3 days, 12 hours ago

    They must be miniature landing lines, or whatever those boat ropes are called… Lovely color combo, love those Czech beads. I could certainly use some sun, beach or no beach, so even AZ might work, CC!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Copper Mountain”   3 days, 12 hours ago

    Plastic or no — that button looks good (Buttons usually ARE plastic, and I should know, I have many, but I seldom use them for jewelry!) The rest is gorgeous too! Would LOVE to wear!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Ellie’s Happy Day”   3 days, 12 hours ago

    I really think so too, CC, and talking with people like this from around the world certainly widens the mind, and makes us more tolerant! Lovely story, beautiful jewelry, and Ellie is such a darling! To me, the painting on the button looks like a native indian feather headband, or nearly at least… What a perfect [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “It’s all about the hearts…”   3 days, 13 hours ago

    I like the second last, wire worked heart best — it’s quirky! And I also like the beads mixed with chain! They are all lovely though!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “~ Bookmarks ~”   1 week, 6 days ago

    They ARE pretty, and so substantial you shouldn’t loose them too easily! All the elements are nice to contemplate: lucky club members — have you thought which one to give to each, or will there be a fight ? But I think everyone will be happy!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Heart of Hearts”   1 week, 6 days ago

    Yummy colors, and such a pretty heart!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Thank you Lynda”   1 week, 6 days ago

    Love, love the plant elements on them! That’s just my flower (how do you DO them?? , not necessarily needing an answer, if it is a trade secret)! The second last is my fave too, the combination of colors and pattern. I especially like that you made them two-hole: I’ve been having great fights with turning [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Gift Set in Silver and Nature”   1 week, 6 days ago

    Thanks Deb, gives me an idea what to look for. Would probably be great in a drill press/bench drill (which we have, but it takes only 3 mm bits and larger). Will put on my list of things to plan for

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Silver Swirl”   1 week, 6 days ago

    Thanks for the tip, Rocky!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “frosted”   2 weeks ago

    Frosted indeed! Love how the clear and light blue beads compliment each other!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “6 different earrings :-)   2 weeks ago

    Absolutely love them, Rikke! Can’t pick a favorite! Incredibly romantic, or maybe that should be a bit Shabby Chic (if there is such a genre in other than interior design )? Do you mean that you cast the leaves yourself in resin, are there molds that size? (Cast = gjuta in Swedish, and mold, if I [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Silver Swirl”   2 weeks ago

    Wow!! This has to go into faves, it’s SO special! Love the contrast of the tangled leather and the delicate swirls! Is that aluminium coated in any way — my experience with aluminium is that it rubs off on the skin fairly easily? Where do you get it?

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “All About The Dragonfly”   2 weeks ago

    Absolutely beautiful! I love the double strand, and the oxidized silver was a good choice!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Charmed I ‘m Sure”   2 weeks ago

    Cute! I like being reminded that there are techniques still waiting for me…

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Gift Set in Silver and Nature”   2 weeks ago

    Thank you again for wonderful comments! Glad to inspire Deb, those Hitachi bits sound interesting — maybe they are of the expensive kind I always figured you needed something very special, like a miniature hammer drill or something, to drill stone and glass, and it was a revelation that it could be done with a hand [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Gift Set in Silver and Nature”   2 weeks, 2 days ago

    My humblest thanks to all of you! I’m sure I don’t deserve such wonderful comments!

    Talia M and Asia: I use diamond drills (looks like these http://www.slojd-detaljer.se/k…..rr-pid6307 ) — my metal teacher told me that these cheap ones are ok, but one has to be careful to keep them cooled. Expensive ones are sturdier. I fill a plastic [...]
