    just what any self-respecting headhunter needs to complete his image – a bow bone to top his ‘do’…. priceless Becky & utterly you!

    Becky, Your creativity shines! The waxed linen atop the masks looks like a wild hairdo and completes the look perfectly. Very imaginative and special. :)

    Love your shop, Becky! Such creative, unique pieces, some of which I’d seen here but many of which I’d not! I really like the series you did with the tila beads – have added one of those bracelets to my wish list!! I bet that design would also make a really cool wrap bracelet.

    puppychick labratbecky says:

    Thanks to all of you! :) I had fun designing this in my head and then figuring out how to make it work.

    Dill, thanks for the kind words about my shop! I initially tried to make those tila bead bracelets double wraps, etc. but there are so many holes so close together that it takes a mile of thread. After tangling myself up a few times I gave up and stayed with the singles. A better way to do it is with Czech glass squares. They are slightly bigger and you get more bracelet length for your mile of thread. :) I have some of those to try but so far I am in a different part if the creative jungle that is my work space. Check out Angela’s shop for that kind of bracelet. (world of squirrel craft)

    I love love love these! I have a bunch of these in different colors from Petra also. I have only made one pair of earrings so far but I love yours more than mine. I am crazy for primitive assemblage jewelry using different unexpected elements and you did that to a T with these. Fabulous!
