    I like the simplicity, like how random the holes are , and how some run into others. Very nice!

    LOVE it, Becca!
    Again, as soon as I saw this, before I saw your name, I thought of you. Sure enough it’s another “Becca” piece! Your fabulous, earthy designs are always an inspiration to me! :-)

    …..broken drill bits, shucks! Sounds like a date night with Hubby! ;-) Have fun at the hardware store and make sure you get some cool things to play with for yourself!

    Love this necklace! Your persistence with the drill bits really paid off. And the hardware store is a great place to shop for jewelry making materials. Have fun.
