Lesson Learned

I spent yesterday putting together this Spiral Stitch necklace to show my students on our Saturday Spiral Workshop I learned a valuable lesson.. Hopefully so did my husband.
I added the last 2 "finishing rows"  and asked "Well, what do you think?"
He looked at the necklace, tilted his head and responded. "It looks like old lady jewelry."
I'm not entirely sure if it was the evil squint my eyes got, or the daggers I was surely shooting his way, but he quickly responded:
"You know, like Estate jewelry."

Good recovery....
Never ask a man what he thinks of a piece of jewelry..

Shameless Plug Sunday

          If you're a follower of my Facebook fan page you know that in my efforts to help recognize our artists around the world I am hosting a "Shameless Plug Sunday" This falls in line with the "Buy Handmade" pledge I and many others have taken.
          All participating artists will be posting a link to one item in their store they would like to have promoted. I will then go to that link and send messages out via Twitter. They will post only one item and only one time. If time and Twitter permits there will ba a Shameless 2 round.
        In these economic times when we are all looking for a bargain, remember Handmade may cost a little more-but the quality is the best around. Love and time are put into each item created, not just a paycheck on an assembly line.
          I invite you to visit my page and click a few of the "I'm shameless" posts. You will be pleasantly delighted at all the options and great prices you'll find...

Remember:  Buy Handmade and support your local Artist..
