    Oooo, these are SO cool! Edgy and sparkly at the same time!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Seasonal Crocheted Necklace”   15 hours, 16 minutes ago

    What a great project! Of course you have to make a lot of different colors to match different clothes… Guess it could keep you warm as long as it’s dry, and protect from sunburn too… Multipurpose!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Rustic ears”   15 hours, 22 minutes ago

    Wow, you’re creative! What an assortment!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “The Greenie”   15 hours, 24 minutes ago

    A really interesting new take on a focal! Love it, ditto to all above!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Mint Chocolate Chip”   15 hours, 26 minutes ago

    LOVE that focal! And the rest too

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Indigo & Sage”   15 hours, 28 minutes ago

    Oh, congrats on the Etsy thing!! I can see why, they feel very fresh! I like that the green one combines focal and clasp, keeping the back smooth and comfortable, for working at the computer, for example (I’m so going to steal THAT! — sometime…) Welcome to leather!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Copper Spiral Necklace”   15 hours, 35 minutes ago

    VERY skilled wirework! I love everything about the necklace, especially that the front is striking, but the back is at least as well designed and beautiful!
    Those earrings are “envy-inspirig” too, so evenly wrapped, and a classical flattering shape.

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “New Raku”   15 hours, 40 minutes ago

    Gorgeous finish! I’m not that surprised, since I’ve read that you can stain PC with mica, and eyeshadow is mostly that (the pigment part, I guess). Tempting to try…

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Winter Fire or Summer Heat?”   15 hours, 44 minutes ago

    I’m real late here — the gardening hobby is a bit overwhelming at the moment! I agree with A Rozmin: to me it looks like a problem with where you get your focus. I sometimes take dozens of pics of one piece, and pick the best on the computer screen: focus, lighting, feel… The more you [...]

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

    Agree with all of the above — but if you still feel unsure of it, may I venture my feeling: those peacock seed beads might be the ones not belonging here, they stand out a bit too much among the otherwise more or less perfectly matched pastels. But a lot of interest, agree on that, and [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Owl with an Orange Nose”   1 week, 6 days ago

    This is such a perfect, well-balanced and fun piece! Can’t think of what the colors make me think of… but I like it!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “The simplest design…”   1 week, 6 days ago

    It would, CC, but she’s only 11, and haven’t yet got her ears pierced! She showed a bit of interest in that direction the other day, but I said that summer and swimming might not be the best companions to sore earlobes.
    Thank you Nancy!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “The simplest design…”   2 weeks ago

    Not on me CC, you’re not !! No way I would model earrings! Thank you for the wish, Becky!

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

    Thank you ladies (bow)! Del — exactly my thought, the linen blouse! Nancy, I’m too lazy too keep up my stock of matching hooks, much easier to make them as I need them!! (And get an exact match, if I want to.) And yes, these beads are just so incredibly gorgeous! Becky, yes, I’ll have to [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica shared a new Design: “Too long”   2 weeks, 1 day ago

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Peridot Resin Earrings”   2 weeks, 1 day ago

    A sore point, that resin — I should dig out my bottles, because I was asked to do some earrings with oyster shells or whatever they may be from a beach in Thailand, and they are so incredibly flaky and fragile, the only thing I can think of is covering them with a thin layer of [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Barbed Wire Skull Bracelet”   2 weeks, 1 day ago

    Very cool! Nice beads. There is something very appealing with those handmade headpins, especially the double ones! I’m totally into them too!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Caged beauty”   2 weeks, 1 day ago

    Do I need to say I love this!!! Just my style I’ve also been thinking along these lines lately, a cage with a stone inside, only I hadn’t thought of adding a “roof and floor”. Not sure what I will make of my ideas. But I’ve also used those double-melted headpins, in my “Ash Monday” necklace [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “The simplest design…”   2 weeks, 1 day ago

    Becky, at the moment both silver and titanium seem to be ok! It took 2 months for them to heal completely. Messed it up once by taking out the piercing studs and using my own 0.8 mm wire for several days, then going back to the studs, which are 1 mm or so, and didn’t quite [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “new pretties”   2 weeks, 2 days ago

    That dog is cute!
