    I actually think either one would look awesome on you! And Miss Faith, believe me, you ain’t all that wide, take it from someone who used to weigh 475 lbs, you not wide, I promise! 8O

    Thank you Ravin. That was very sweet of you. I appreciate the compliment.

    Vampire Chickie Ravin says:

    Not just a compliment my dear, just the simple truth as I see it. Trust me, if I thought any differently, I’d tell you, I am unfortunately, brutally honest, and have been accused of having no tact. I’m the friend that when ya come and ask me “Do these jeans make me look fat?” If they do, I’m like yeah, they make ya look fat, try something else. I figure if they don’t really WANT the truth, then don’t ask me. heh

    Thanks Ravin. You can see the tiny necklace I have on in the pic of me in black t-shirt. That is what i usually wear so I am creating way out of the box for me. It has become more fun to think about wearing larger things though. I don’t go anywhere sooooo it doesn’t really matter. And at my age I can do what I want I guess even if it doesn’t sound like me Tee Hee Hee.

    Thank you Alice. This one fits more like a choker. I really do like the tiny smokey quartz earrings with this one. The wires are removable ones so I can change out the bead sets. I forgot the other night thinking they were fish hook and nearly pulled my ear off. Had to laugh when I did it. For only being 2 of us in this house there is a lot of noise. He’s in one room laughing over TV or having night mares yelling and snoring and both of us run around talking to ourselves because we’ve lost so much hearing. Really is not dull here at all. Then we have 5 animals who well you know look at us like we have lost our minds.

    There ya go!! Definitely think outside the box, I’d love to see a pic of you one with each necklace, so I could form an informed opinion on which I think looks better, you may say you’re old, but you don’t LOOK old, old is a state of mind, besides, growing old might be mandatory, but growing up is optional! Live young and as free as you can! Heh, look at me…I’m a 39 year old gothic/punk rock/metalhead! Most people think I’m in my 20′s, mostly due to my numerous tattoo’s and piercings, lol.

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Faith, I really like this set, too! Like Ravin, it would be fun to see photos of you wearing each one! BTW, that is a great picture of you! :D

    Faith, you are a very pretty woman. I think we should all get over our feelings about ourselves and model our creations on line. Oh, and love the necklaces too. I like the idea of same “basic” necklace “supersized”

    Faith this is beautiful and so are YOU!
    I’m glad to finally put a face to your name.

    I know what you mean about coming out of your comfort zone when it comes to wearing larger jewery. I tend to prefer smaller pieces myself but am learning to wear chunkier things. I think either of the necklaces you made would look great on you! They are chunkier but they’re not huge.
    Give ‘em a go and be sure to show them to us on you!! :-)

    Wow I just checked in on the comments of this necklace. Thank you ladies for all the sweet things you have said. That picture was taken about 1 1/2 months ago and I just keep gaining weight. I go to a diet doctor tomorrow. I am (was 5ft 2in like Arja but right now I weigh 168 pounds. I have never weighed that much. With my back problems and breathing problems I have to get rid of at least the 20 pounds I have gained in the last 3 months. I think it is my meds Dr. doesn’t say; part is my eating junk. Well I’m gonna get rid of some anyhow.

    D Snyder the American flags in the background are from my husbands Father and my Father. Both given after the funerals. My brother got my Dad’s and well he should have but he passed away about 11 years ago now, so it lives at my house. Here is a picture of my husband Ted; but, he is not smiling.
