    HaHa! That llama is sooo funky! I worked with llamas in the past. Not a one of them was lime green! Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

    SweetJane, Both of these necklaces are great! The lime llama focal is so cool–and I really like how you picked up the color with the flower & rings. And your choices for the wooden tree piece are perfect! Love the twig beads & the little leaves you added by the pendant. Hope your shoulder is healing and will be back to normal quickly. I did notice you weren’t around for a while. Glad your back! :)

    I’m echoing that I’m glad you’re back and hope everything went well with your surgery and healing is progressing nicely. I really like the quirky llama! The colors help to make it a playful piece. I am in love and drooling over the tree necklace. You found awesome beads to go with the pendant.

    I like both a lot! The wooden tree pendant is great. Looks like the tree is cut into the pendant. In any case I love the shades of teal plus tan. The llama, of course, has so much personality! Love how you picked up the lime in the rings and what I assume is a bell. Great new pet! Hope your shoulder is healing well. I injured one some time back and remember well, so I hope for full and pain free recovery for you!
