    Love the dark and light combo. Those stones are just gorgeous and I love the contrasting shapes. What a couple of little cuties you had for an audience too! Brita has that smiling thing DOWN!

    Thank you! About the baby girls, I love them all. :)

    My parents are both still alive and are in their late 70′s and they currently have 6 great granddaughters (3 from my kids) and no great grandsons! What are the odds? :)

    The iolite and chalcedony are excellent together. And you’ve used my favorite wrapped ring again!
    Your grand babies are ADORABLE!!! :)

    I wish I had neighbors like that, love your stone choices and the wire work is awesome. Love your grand babes already interested in jewelry :D

    becoming a big fan of ‘two blues’ & you have it all WRAPPED up!…..Becky, what name have you given to your unique “wreath-style” ring-wrap?…it seems quite versatile & is featuring in lotsof your pieces….love your little dreamboats & how lovely to have 4 generations of your family in your life!…can really hear Brita’s chuckle!

    Love the necklace! Love the earrings! And the babies are adorable!!

    Elis Mom says:

    Becky, the little ones are adorable!

    I also have noticed your “wreath ring”. Is it difficult to make? I think it makes a great “Trade mark”, if you will. I love this set! Lucky neighbor!

    Medieval Momma says:

    Wow! Beautiful jewelry and beautiful, precious grandbabies!

    puppychick labratbecky says:

    Thank you all!!! I am smiling so hard from all your wonderful comments that my face hurts. :) !! xoxoxoxoxo!!

    The wreath ring is not very hard once you figure out how to tighten the wraps. I came up with it in desperation when I either didn’t know what else to do or the factory made pieces I had just weren’t good enough. I like to use it so you will be seeing it a lot. The other connector I have “mastered” is the 2-to-1 loop thing in the driftwood earrings. Both were made in response to a need and desperation. :) Do you guys want a tute?

  16. Beadzilla aka Wanda
    Beadzilla aka Wanda says:

    Love the colors in this, and your wreath ring is gorgeous as always Becky! Your little ones are just so darn cute :)

    “Tute, tute, tute, tute!! Pleeeeeeeeeze!”

    Just lovely, Becky :)

    Ok, I will do a tute after my one and only craft show is done this Saturday. :)

    Really…This set is beautiful!! What a combination you have there.
    The babies of course are sweet as sugar. ;)

    GORGEOUS! Wow Becky I love these colors! Not to mention your fabulously adorable grandkids! Sooooo cute! I love your little wreath too! Please oh please oh please do a tutorial! ;) What’s the 2 to 1 loop thing? Sheesh I wish I could come up with ideas like this! ;)

    Must say your neighbour has VERY good taste!! Love the wire work! But where on earth did you find that steel wire, what brand is it? Is it all-steel, or colored? I have been looking for something like that, but got slightly discouraged when I bought some rock-hard 20 gauge steel wire last July. It made such an awful dent in my flush cutter, I had to buy a new one :-( . Not to mention trying to bend it.

Add your thoughts!
