Something a Little Different

Hi everyone,

I hope you have all been well.  I have caught the cold that never ends, coupled with a generous dose of seasonal allergies and it all started while recovering from a little surgery :(  I've been better, but enough complaining.  I hope you can all forgive my absence from the land of blog and my tardiness with this post.  I have been trying to get around and leave comments, but I am still behind.

A new challenge just started at Creatalicious and the theme for the next month is 'For the Girls.'  So we want to see a craft you have created for a gal in your life.  Remember, it can be any type of craft as long as it fits the theme.  I thought I would show you something a little different this month - a necklace I made using cherry quartz beads and sterling silver components (chain, half-hard wire, jump rings and clasp).  I was very pleased with how the asymmetrical design turned out.

This challenge is sponsored by The Trinket Track and one lucky winner will receive a $20 coupon to their store!  I hope you will join in :)

Thanks for popping in and for taking the time to leave a comment.  I really appreciate each one, and will do my best to visit you too within the next few days.

Oh wow, I also blogged about a handmade necklace yesterday--that's quite a coincidence! I guess now we know another thing we have in common. :)

Your necklace looks great--I love the asymmetrical design and the way some of the beads dangle in a cluster.

P.S. hope you feel better soon!

Dawn, this is really fashionable! How lovely to wear a necklace like this with the right attire. I love the asymmetry in it. A beautiful treasure. So what will you wear this with. I am sorry you have been "under the weather." Prayers and healing thoughts being sent your way for renewed strength in fighting off those bad old germies. You are too nice to be feeling poorly. hugs, de

The land of blog...why that phrasing sounds so much more magical, I dunno ;) Love it, though!
That sucks big time that you've had the health concerns all piled up on top of one another. I really hope you're on the mend.
That necklace is simply stunning! Love it :)
