|12:13 pm - Updated Jewelry pictures|
I have updated jewelry pictures here. I changed up the template to one I find easier to read and navigate with.
And I have a poll. Which I apparently can't post in this message.
See next message for poll.

Yeah, apparently one must remember to upload the files to the internet before they can be used. Who knew?
Should be all set now.

Gorgeous jewelry as always. Why is my name beside the pretty herringbone necklace? Is it an example of Mayan art/colors/pattern? I'm wearing a dress today with just those colors.
I'm trying to talk myself out of getting into beading. I do not have time. I do not have space. I have cats that like to sit on whatever I'm working on and rub their chins against anything I have in my hands. I have a strong desire to do beaded flowers, or patterns in brick stitch. I want to make a bead teapot out of seed beads. I do not have time. Tell me, please, this is too expensive, time consuming, and will make my husband crazy?
Your cats will eat your thread, and inevitably needles, which will require extrication. On a Friday nightat Mass Vet Referral Hospital in Woburn, if your cat is as extra good as mine was, this will only cost you the bargain price of $95. If your cat is not as good as mine (and most are not), it will cost a LOT more.
I think that covers the "too expensive" part. ;-)
What makes a cat "good" in this regard?
Cats are good in general. Like people, though, they can be quirky and get into odd stuff: eating people's hair (and the resulting issues at the other end), peeing on all things plastic, eating thread and ribbon, eating the cotton off of Q-tips and vomiting the results on your roommate's comforter, etc.
I suspect I spent about $2000 over the course of Fred's life dealing with his eating-of-nonedible-things problems.
Dogs are not immune either - I watched one of those animal ER shows on Animal Planet once, and they showed a big dog who liked to eat the family's laundry - shirts, socks, underwear, you name it. This was his *3rd* surgery to extract clothing from his tummy.

ow. Yes, that covers the too expensive part, especially since my cats aren't that well-behaved!
It's a good thing we didn't get Tobycat then. He'd probably be into eating everything.
Beading is really time and patience. It can be as cheap or as expensive as you want it to be. It's also very addicting.
--liz, beading since 2000, bead store owner since 2004 ;-)
Alright, you caught me. I'd already mailed the package before I posted the pictures and I just didn't think about the fact that it wouldn't have arrived yet.
Greg told me (when I called up to confirm your address) that you were thinking of beading, so I included a small little care package that would start you off.
From his description, it sounded like you were more into the beading as needlework than the beading as stringing larger beads, so that's the mode I went. Larger beading may be easier on the cats, although I don't know. On the one hand, no needles, on the other hand, larger beads. Some of the people in the beadwork community bead in a private room, but if you want to relax and bead, you might want the cats to be able to wander around and near you, so I don't know.
BTW, your tubular herringbone came out lovely!!!
Thanks! I did another one, but it came out too small, so I've given it to a friend with a daughter, who will probably hate it, because it's blue.
And I'm working on another one now.
They're tons of fun.
