    Uh oh, and then you forgot you don’t have pierced ears…LOL! Such a colorful bunch of beads — just right for spring!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Chainamille part 2”   1 week, 3 days ago

    Agree on the silver filled — lots of people out there knowing the difference. Great design, love those rough stones! I mostly use wooden dowels to make jump rings — I drill a hole through at one end, and thread the end of the wire through to keep it put, and start wrapping. Then I cut [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “A name? No idea”   1 week, 3 days ago

    Incredibly yummy!!! I know about calluses…

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Captive Amethyst”   1 week, 4 days ago

    Agree about you being a natural with the wire! Can’t wait to see where you will go in a year or two! 50 INCHES of snow — oh my… we don’t get that even in winter! Although we seem set up to get a bit of sleet this week, but only enough to make the cars [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Pendant obsessed”   1 week, 4 days ago

    SO neat, these would be great for a market, when you need a lot of stuff, and some coherence! Agree about the leather cord, that would be my choice too. Of course you can polish the shine back into a stone, but only with special polishing pastes or diamond sanders. It really is irritating!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Really, Really, Really Long Necklace!”   2 weeks, 3 days ago

    A most uncommonly long necklace! So cool! (& I found that bubble wrap plus bubble envelope makes for a packet just a tiny bit over 2 cm = double shipping cost here, ouch! Know til next time…)

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Taming the Dragon”   2 weeks, 3 days ago

    Always love a leather cord Great design — faved it in your Etsy shop! Ah, but I have several designs that I walked away from — and they still sit there waiting, a year later! Probably means they are crap! And a few finished pieces that I’m taking apart and turning into garden decorations The point [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Sahara beauty”   3 weeks, 3 days ago

    I love this combination of elements too! Pretty!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Combo Necklace”   3 weeks, 3 days ago

    That knit is SOOOO cool! And the kumihimo gave me an idea… might be just what I’m looking for, if I could find some good cord. Or maybe not. Sometime…? Hmmm…

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Teeny tiny earrings”   3 weeks, 3 days ago

    Been there, done that… they LOOK so big in the photos, that those measurements say you absolutely nothing! I got a bunch of faceted Czech and agate from Lima last time, that I needed a microscope to see. But they’ve come in handy And so they did for you: very very nice earrings! About the wire: [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Persian Turquoise Beauty”   3 weeks, 3 days ago

    Beautiful! Love the blue!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Threads”   3 weeks, 3 days ago

    Wow! Can’t wait to see if you can manage to make the thread finding

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Shaun the Sheep”   3 weeks, 3 days ago

    Ah, I think he would be appalled, Chris! But at least this one lived relatively free in a small herd on some nice meadow in a neighboring village…
    Little Round Chick: that is my motto!
    Thanks for all the lovely comments!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Butterfly Kisses”   3 weeks, 4 days ago

    Ditto to all, and good photo too!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Shaun the Sheep”   3 weeks, 5 days ago

    Seems I used “ovals” on Etsy — that’ll do, I think.
    Thank you all again!!!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica shared a new Design: “Shaun the Sheep”   3 weeks, 5 days ago

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Summer Nights”   3 weeks, 5 days ago

    Agree with Pam — I struggle with this kind of bracelets! Such a happy mix of beads!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Swirled in Blue Silver”   3 weeks, 5 days ago

    Such a pretty blue! And very neatly done!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Dragonfly on silk”   3 weeks, 5 days ago

    Love the use of both silk and a string of beads, and a bit of chain too! Looks amazing!
