AKA Christine AKA Chicky Babe, one of the original “Chicks”. I live in New Hampshire with my parents, and now my Nana (maternal grandmother) too. Three generations in one house … so far so good … :) I’m currently 51 years old, my birthday is in July. I’ve been beading since 2007. I’m the oldest of 4, I have 2 sisters (PA and ME) and 1 brother (NH), 4 nephews (2 in PA, 2 in NH) and 1 niece (ME). I’m an ex-RN currently working in retail to keep myself in … you’ve guessed it … BEADS!

    Yes, bubble wrap might not be the best backdrop, but your pins are most assuredly ooohhhh … aaaahhhh. I can see them being big sellers for you. They make me think of medieval chieftans with swirling cloaks … very cool!
    And your son is ultra-cute!!!!

  • CAS commented on the Design “Too much?”   5 hours, 37 minutes ago

    I love the design, and there is nothing not to love about Petra’s focals. I agree with Monica that the Czech glass color is a little off. A neutral or yellow-based green might work better, the emeraldy shade is a little too blue.

    Julie, you have me running out of breath with all the oooohhhhing and aaaahhhhing that I’ve been doing over your pieces. Love these too!

    Julie, you and your Mom make a formidable pair. These are wonderful, and yes, I adore all of them. Oooohhhh … aaaahhhh … sigh ….

    My dear Chickies, my beloved Nana (maternal Grandmother) passed away here at home on Saturday, March 16th, 2013 after a brief hospital stay. She was surrounded by her family, and her death was a peaceful one. Please, if you would, include her in your thoughts and prayers.
