    She’s right…they do go perfect together. What a lovely necklace that would be. Have you gotten yoir rose yet?

  5. Julie Shane
    Julie Shane says:

    Deb: Nope. $20 for 1 piece the size of a quarter… even though it is hand crafted and gorgeous and unique…

  6. Deb Harding
    Deb Harding says:

    See this I can justify spending the money on…if I had that much to spend…because its the focal. But you know that chain crafy store has a package with 3 roses, 1 copper, 1 brass, 1 silver. Not handcrafted though. I bought this because I’m making a necklace for someone with some dusty pink glass pearls, pink quartz and pink opals.

    Forgot to say it will be slightly like the teal necklace I just did. And I got it at 50% off.

    Lovely, Julie! Lovely, Deb! I saw that piece, Deb, but not on sale. :( Both of you need to show us your designs!!

    It wasn’t on sale. I had the 50% off one item coupon. I bought a string of carved soapstone and that. The coupon expires today.

    Deb, I already bought the package with 3 roses in different metals at M’s. Very cool. I’m somehow going to combine all 3 for a funky textured focal. I think I’m going to do same patina paints. The idea is still “percolating” in my head. ;)
