    I’m going green with envy! would love to make such a cool mix of stuff — maybe I have the wrong stuff?!? Or just too plain brain…
    So incredibly cool it somehow mesmerizes me! Could be dangerous to wear… people gawping at your neck, speechless, hypnotized, bumping into things…

    …and SO pleased to be inspiring — I think it is my main motive for sharing my designs actually, not just the kicks of getting positive comments! (And of course I come back to be inspired by all of you!)

    Many colors, but perfect matches — you don’t even notice at first that they are so many, they are so harmonious! Classy-looking bead caps.

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Sturdy Recycled Cuff”   2 days, 20 hours ago

    Thanks!!! This is one I really like: Nancy and Eve, you are so right, it goes with anything, and is incredibly shiny so far! Worried a bit about what I will do when it darkens, first thought of adding a layer of varnish, but then I thought it will scratch, and darken through the scratches, and [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Tree Frog Tryst”   4 days, 2 hours ago

    Well, on etsy the feel of the picture is probably more important than here, where we like to ogle over technical detail . But still I think I would use the second one, if it was the only. It shows all the detail, is very clear, and still has a wonderful feel! Good luck, hope you [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Diaper Party Favors!!!”   4 days, 5 hours ago

    They are SO good! Hope you have fun!

  • Thank you all for the wonderful comments, you’re so incredibly supportive!! Eve, the color doesn’t go all the way, but a little bit it does, and that is enough to give it life. In principle you could carve through the stained part to get a light pattern, but that is VERY hard (literally), I’ve tried!

    Interesting story, and certainly a successful restringing! Beautiful!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Tree Frog Tryst”   4 days, 19 hours ago

    WOW!! Nearly missed this, think you put the wrong pic as first! Or I was just browsing lazily… Nice green, very tropical-frog-like — but the design!!! Those ovals… has to go into faves! But the whole combo of materials is so exquisite!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “More Bracelets and some Earrings”   4 days, 19 hours ago

    They are all just lovely, but I agree with CC (again…!): I also fell for the perfect match of the striped rectangles and the focal in blue. And what a good idea about the earrings! Must admit: I hugely admire all the awesome PC work I see here, but can’t see myself doing any, as it [...]

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “The Olive Donut”   4 days, 19 hours ago

    Agree with CC on the donut! Very neat job! And so well matched colors!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “White Tiger Lily PC Components”   4 days, 19 hours ago

    I think they look awesome! Like some soft carved wood. Maybe they were very different from your usual style on etsy? (Had a look at your designs here, and these certainly were your style, but well, sometimes the right people just aren’t around to comment )
    Please keep doing these, love them!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Redo Pendant”   4 days, 19 hours ago

    The re-do is definitely much better — and looks safer too! I somehow get the feeling that the stone would pop out of the wire in the first version (know from experience that can be a very real problem!). Plus it is a nicer shape in the later version! Love it!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Still Nut Hunting, Indian Summer and more”   5 days, 21 hours ago

    They are all just perfect, but the first and last ones may be my favorites! I’m especially impressed by the clasps — and you did the last one yourself — WOW! So inspiring!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “My bunch of bracelets. :)   5 days, 21 hours ago

    Absolutely gorgeous! And I’ve got those beads!! But your design is just so much cooler !!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Hip Hop”   1 week, 3 days ago

    The bunny is best Although I would love to make a toggle like that… When will I be able to pull off a lovely mix like this — envious!

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “Fall Colors”   1 week, 3 days ago

    Thanks for the positive comments!! Something to counter the hubby, coming home late from work, going “eeh?? -aren’t they a bit rustic?” (continuing with “ouch!”…)
    CC and Beadling: eeh… tried, didn’t get a near decent “selfie”

  • pearlsandme aka Monica commented on the Design “A mess of bracelets”   1 week, 3 days ago

    Know what you mean, Beadling . Although mine are bigger now.
