    Just perfect! That clasp part is really well made too!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Dragon Egg”   4 days, 3 hours ago

    It is SOO beautiful! And very unusual! Hope he likes it — you never know, but at least you’ll know you have done an amazing piece worthy of an artist!

    Our car just finally gave in (or we gave up on it, hearing again that “weeell, we can’t find any obvious fault, but we’ll try this and [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Con-versation”   4 days, 3 hours ago

    Really a LOT of stuff, hope you sold well!! Like the memory wire bracelets (and the earrings, etc…!) Just recovering from my second ever show/Christmas market — I’ll post some pics soon if they turned out decent!

    I had problems with photos the wrong way when I uploaded from my camera via my Window 8 tablet to [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Gingko”   1 week, 5 days ago

    Someday I’ll have to try this too, it seems so satisfying… Amazing work!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Queen”   1 week, 5 days ago

    Love this! I also love those reds — and gold wooden beads, how cool is that! (I have the wooden beads, and some bottles of metallic color, hmmm…)

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Teal tortie asymmetrical earrings”   1 week, 5 days ago

    So happy for you that you get something sold at etsy now! Yes, the pictures are really complimenting the earrings — you’ve learned a lot!
    They are fantastic all of them, your style is so special!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Heart lampword earrings”   1 week, 5 days ago

    I think these are my faves, for some reason I can’t figure! (I mean really, it should be some of the darker ones…)

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Minimalist Pebble”   1 week, 5 days ago

    Oh, thanks ever so much, CC!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “What Animal…?!”   1 week, 5 days ago

    Thank you Nancy, that was the best compliment ever ! CC, send my greetings to your hubby… nice to make such an impression! What does he think of the beef…;-D The Christmas fair I’m gearing up to is at the farm where the cows are reared, so I’m making lots of bone jewelry at the moment! [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Asymmetrical lampwork earrings”   1 week, 6 days ago

    You’re back! Been wondering how you are! Have to go to sleep now, must look at the rest tomorrow, but these are awesome! Wonderfully original!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “What Animal…?!”   1 week, 6 days ago

    Nearly got a tear in my eye, such wonderful comments! We’re all different, Maggies Mom, I’ve never strung superduos, and I just can’t manage those wonderful mixes a lot of you do — but this site certainly widens your horizons!

    Oh, I left out the flux in the tip on how to melt scrap: before turning on [...]

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

    Thanks!! Well, I hsve to be the queen of minimalism for that shop to take anything, A Rozmin!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Inspired by Julie”   2 weeks ago

    Oh Angela, I can only imagine how terrible the loss is. I’m so sorry. But the bracelets are amazing, straight into faves! They are just that style that I can’t even copy, how hard I’d ever try! I just don’t manage to mix that many elements and clever solutions in a single design! Sigh…

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Color me Christmas”   2 weeks ago

    I also think you got the green-red spot on, but I can see why you don’t quite like it yet: I guess it takes some careful matching when it comes to what clothes it goes with! It is so colorful, you would need to have a very monochrome outfit, I think. Black, or maybe blue/denim, quite [...]

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

    Thank you Janet and Angela! A Rozmin: at least the blue is what makes these pictures, you’re right there! Not sure if that is true for it in real life. Actually I’m not quite sure about this design at all: it might be too busy and bohemic for the taste of most people around here, but [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Some finished pieces”   2 weeks, 2 days ago

    Btw, I haven’t given up the thought of setting up a shop (for findings and focals mainly perhaps)– only I’m so busy with Christmas sales right now, I have no spare parts at all, everything gets made into something!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Hawthorn Finished”   2 weeks, 2 days ago

    Thank you so much! Such great comments!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Some finished pieces”   2 weeks, 3 days ago

    Wow, what comments, thanks!!!

    L Kay, I use sodium persulfate, but the tape is universal (depending on the quality), I think you could use it with most etching solutions (if it’s not some impossibly strong acid! Ferric cloride should be OK.).

    The stone was a dream come true for me too, and many people I’ve showed them to! [...]
