I finished this necklace tonight. It should be a nice compliment to my Bauble Jar II bracelet. It has white and gray pearls, along with silver orbs (large and small) and small pearls. Even a few wire-wrapped beads. I used two different silver chains -- one larger than the other -- to create a multi-strand necklace x 4. Color-wise, my photos do not come close to producing an accurate image, but I'll keep trying. It's very frustrating for me not to be able to show my finished work accurately.
Bedazzled or not, I now have to go about those things that moms do the week before Christmas. Wrapping, making cookies (and icing them), making gingerbread houses (and eating them when no one is looking), filling stockings, and taking stock of the past year and giving thanks for how blessed we really are.
Six days and counting......ciao.
