    I think this is great how you strung it with the S-lon. What beautiful colors and design! The flowers above the pendant are lovely. If I may ask, how did you attach them?

    I did a larks head on the pendant with 2 cords. So I have 4 cords coming up…then I took 1 set of cords, pulled 1 cord through a flower and knotted them together. Took the other set of cords and did the same on the other side. Took 1 cord from each set and did the 3rd flower. And knotted it.again. It took a lot of finagling.

    Super-duper!!! I like the cream pendant with the 2 carved beads. I especially like the brown flowers with the coppery seedbeads. Very earthy. I bought a bunch of the $1 pendants at FM. Haven’t had a chance to play with them. You have given me inspiration to “MacGyver-up” the bargain pieces! :)

    Doesn’t BB just think he is THE MAN!!! So cute. Is Precious jealous of the time they spend with him? Or is she just relieved? :)

    I want Tiramisu, that’s what this looks like to me Wanda…..YUM!!!

    Julie which pendants did you get? I have a denim one I will work on next. The flowers came from FM also.

    Julie the babies are not spending much tome with Precious at all. Until I can get her fixed she is confined to the bathroom. She was in there already so I cant figure out how she got pregnant.

    Another great design. Love the coppery beads with the pendant and flowers. I gotta try that S lon.

    Susie I like S-lon because its smaller than waxed linen. It is also slippery so beads slid on easier. The drawbacks are it tends to unravel on the ends and because it’s slippery it wont hold itself in a braid like linen. So.you comstantly have to pull it tight. Comes in lots of colors also and holds its color. It’s the cord that most people that do bead crochet use and because it’s a nylon it is washable. You’ll notice on the Etsy sites of slashknots, 3divas, & others they state their jewelry is.hand washable.

    Deb I got this pendant when I bought the dragonfly from FM, it has given me fits because nothing seems to work with it, but you did a fab job with it.

    It took forever for me to figure it out though. I kept putting stuff next to it & going “meh”. I thought when I bought it “cream…lots of options” lol!!

    BTW thank you.
