About this design:

Sloppy wirewrapped dangels that I think looks like females with dress on. (Might add ribbon to one of them haven't made up my mind yet, and had no ribbon that matched...) The dangels are not centered on the piece.

Components:

Charoite, Emerald, Golden Pyrite, Dogtooth Amethyst, Ruby Zoisite, Vintaj Brass spacer beads, clasp, chain and crimpbeads, Artistic Wire 22 g, Soft Flex Extreme Campagne string wire.

    Way cool, Frida! Just my style!

    puppychick labratbecky says:

    Very cool design! Love the randomness yet it has purpose. The one charoite in the middle really has a kooky drill direction! Like it’s hanging on for dear life just trying to stay at the party! :)

    Deb Harding says:

    I hate when I look back at my comments and there is some incomprehensible mess in it!!! Tiny flipping phone keyboard that submits comments while I’m editing!!

  7. Frida
    Frida says:

    Thank you my friends :D

    Nancy Mc, God Jul to you too :D

    Becky the drillholes are little kooky on the charoit, think pebbles are a little hard that way, but fun ;) Very into random stuff right now, and taking apart old stuff…

    Deb, you too funny :D I understand you as my fingers sometimes writing one message at the same time as my head writing something else :P

    Frida, This is so wonderful! It is bright and cherry in colors but very classy in design. Sorry, but also thank you… I’m going to have to steal this design idea from you!!! Don’t think I’m be able to replicate the lovely dangle ladies however! :)

    love the gorgeous colour & shape combo, Frida!…. how do you keep the dancing “damsel in de dress” dangles off centre when wearing?…does’nt the weight of the stones pull them to the lowest point, like how do you balance it?

  13. Frida
    Frida says:

    Thank you so much :D

    Julie no problemo ;) Might add how I made those ladies ;) I you like them.

    Franny; yes they wont stay in place, for me it’s not a problem, they can dance around my wrist if they wanna. Now I dunno if I gonna keep this. Might try it and see if it behaves :P

    puppychick labratbecky says:

    Hope you didn’t think that comment on the charoite was a critique… I really do love pebbles put together randomly…and like julie, I may have to steal your idea. :)

  24. Frida
    Frida says:

    Thank you Maria :D

    No worries Becky, I didn’t think about as critique and if it were I can handle it ;) Whats right and wrong when it comes to design, handcraft and art? (My limit is dead animals and making innocent suffer in the name of art) Ohhh rambling again, sorry…

  25. puppychick  labratbecky
    puppychick labratbecky says:

    I think you and I share the same regard for living things. :) !! I am possibly going to give a friend a dog for Christmas and while I am looking through all the rescue groups for the right pup, I keep thinking I need this one… and that one…and his littermate…. and and…. ALL of them!

  26. Frida
    Frida says:

    What a wonderful gift Becky (yes if she want a dog of course ;) ). Me too is like that. My pets are my babies, but I also bond with all “stranger cats, dogs, horses etc) :)

    Lovely piece Frida! God Yul and Peace on Earth to all of us and all of the little animals! Hey, how do you say Peace on Earth in Swedish?

  30. Frida
    Frida says:

    Thank you Mary, Elis and Susan :D

    Susan; God Jul to you too :D Peace on Earth is Fred på Jorden! Actually one of the meanings of my name is peace ;)
