    Thanks, Lynn! I got all of these at the same gem/rock shop where I bought the geodes — it’s in Cedarburg, WI. :D

    Lynn, you certainly made good use of your time in the rock and gem shop. All of the pendants are gorgeous! And the geodes ain’t too shabby either. :D

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    LOL Nancy!

    That shop was so much fun — it was the first time I’d been in a gem/rock shop and I just wanted to scoop them all up in my arms and run for the car! 8O

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Not to suggest that I would steal them — Bob would stay behind and pay….LOL

    Stunning, how do you add the bails Lynn? Can you message me that please, if you don’t mind?

  21. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Sarah, I’ll write it here and I’ll message you to make sure you get it. I buy a bail with a flat side to it, apply either super glue or E6000 glue to the bail, press it against the pendant, hold for about 15-20 seconds, and then let it sit overnight. With the super glue, it is dry very quickly, but I like to play it safe. The E6000 instructions recommend letting it cure overnight. If you have any more questions, just let me know, please! :D

    Oops, forgot to say thanks for the compliment, Sarah! :)

    Where shall we hide the body, Good Friend? In the garden under the rose bush? Or we could toss it into a patch of prickly pears and it would be there for ever. No body in their right mind wants to wade through prickly pears. Hummmm, sounds like a good title for a song….Tip Toe Through the Prickly Pears…Can’t you just hear Tiny Tim? (Is that a ukulele I hear in the background?) ;)
