    Aren’t you something? Do you know if this stone is sometimes called Zebra Stone? Lovely necklace et al! You’re something else. I just made a necklace using scarabs from the museum shop at the King Tut exibit in Philadelphia a couple of years ago. Nothing like the Washington DC exhibit in 76, which I heard about and missed because I didn’t want to get up at 4:30 am!

    movie chick aka susan says:

    Southern Chick – thank you…any chance you can get a picture of that necklace so I can see…I love the stuff they have in museum gift shops…my jewelry is not the most complicated pieces out there but it is what I like to wear…I am trying to branch out and use more than one or even two different stones in my pieces, old habits die hard :)

  4. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    No, I don’t think I know that is also called the zebra stone, makes sense though…not sure I would want to get at 4:30 am either, even for King Tut ;)

  5. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    I’m still so “young” at this, I’m still not good enough to just use a couple of stones. I can really put together some “weird” combinations. I’m somtimes embarrassed by my “picks”. You are all to kind…. I’ll try to take a pic right now. We’ll see.

  6. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    I’m trying to upload the pic, and as usual, its being “horsey” with me! I’m sorry, it isn’t letting me browse for my pick. I’ll try tomorrow.

  7. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    funny how we see ourselves, I am in awe of people who create something out of alot of different stones, the piece has so much personality that way :)

    I’ve heard of Zebra Jasper – here? Neat pick! It would go with anything dressy or casual.

  9. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    no problem about the pic…I appreciate you trying :)

  10. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    Lori – LB has brown, mexican, yellow and red zebra, is that what you asking or am I confused?

  11. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Susan – another GREAT set!

    Just noticed the carved barrel in this pick – what a cool bead!

  12. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    I got a fair pic, but when it says to browse, nothing pops up. I’ll try again tomorrow. I’m going to work on a chinese porcelain bead (blue and white) and cobalt beads that I bought today at a bead outlet shop that I unfortunately heard about. It was nice to actually see the LB beads in person, though.

  13. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    It says that a pic is attaching. I have no idea what…guess we’ll see, since I couldn’t choose it myself!

  14. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Sorry, I should have opened another window to look before commenting! Maybe it’s the red zebra that I’m thinking of. Or something from Hobby Lobby. I’m not called Dizzy for no reason!

    movie chick aka susan says:

    Lori – LOL!

  17. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Southern Chick – you won’t see the photo till you post your comment. It took me a while to catch that one – I waited a minute or 2 before I figured it out!

  18. Southern Chickie
    Southern Chick says:

    Yeah, I know that it takes FOREVER, but where it says to browse, nothing is coming up to browse on my computer, so I’m not able to select the pic that I want to upload. I’ll keep trying…Thanks for your patience and help.

  19. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    When you click on browse, do you get a directory of your computer? If so, then go to where you keep the photos – mine has a separate folder for them. Does that make sense?

    I clicked on this pick cuz the title intrigued me…then I saw the necklace and you’ve given me a new appreciation for black and white stones. Thanks! ;)

    movie chick aka susan says:

    thanks chickies…i love black white jewelry…I am going to Vegas at the end of June, I want to find a new black dress to wear with this set for one of the nights I am there :)

  25. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    as far as the movie title, this is the movie I was watching when I made the set and water is a significant factor in the movie (i.e. black water jasper)

  26. Classy Chick JbyJill
    Classy Chick JbyJill says:

    I love your set. It will look fantastic with your little black dress!!!! Vegas, baby!! Where are you staying??

    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    I am looking for a necklace that I believe you posted…it had chain at the ends of it…I don’t know the pick it was posted on and I am trying to teach myself how to do that…no good classes available here…can you help me? Thank you!

    Luv2bead - Little Chick says:

    I never saw that necklace…really cool! I just started using extender chains because so many people have requested them. ;)

  40. Debbi aka Sparkle Chick
    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    That is a beautiful necklace! It WAS a more recent one…perhaps in blue stones?
    The chain extender was more visible. I think it was the necklace you posted just before the pink prom necklace.

    Thanks so much Little Chick. It’s one of my favorites and it’s all mine! You may recall a discussion a few months back about LB’s gr. tourmalated quartz and prehnite I bought locally. Well I decided LB’s is the same & it’s half the price!

  42. Debbi aka Sparkle Chick
    Debbi aka Sparkle Chick says:

    How wonderful that you kept that beauty for yourself!

    I’m off to church, I’ll check in later!

    I will also check online tutorials later..I really appreciate your instant call for help Jeanne! :)

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    I went through all of my photos and I’m not sure which one.
    When I want to attach chain or just links to the end, I attach a closed jumpring before crimping. then use open jump rings as links. You can use split rings if you’re worried about open ones. I’ve also used 2 rings if it’s a heavier piece.

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    I also learned to attach chain with a wrapped looped, like in the prom set.
    I hope I was helpful :)
