I started playing around with making necklaces out of the same bits I use to make the bracelets, and this is my very first attempt. I bought some inexpensive chain from Michael's, and had the rest of the parts on hand (which was kind of cool).
I'll eventually order some nicer chain, but it went together pretty easily. I need to fiddle with the length of the chain and the number of bits to make it lay as flat as possible. Longer, shorter, less pieces, more pieces, I think I just need to make several and see which ones lay the best.
In other news, it looks to be a perfect weekend to get my garden beds prepped. We have gotten a smudge of rain over the last few weeks, but not that dump of snow that we'd consider perfectly normal for this time of year.
In other other news, a dog park friend is recently retired and likes to fish. Yesterday he gave me a salmon fillet, and I don't think I will ever buy salmon in the store. Might not even get it in a restaurant because this stuff was so amazing, it'd be a disappointment any other way. Even with my clumsy cooking of it pan fried and I think I over-cooked it a little. It was fabulous. Wow. I need to make some cookies or something to return the favor, gotta keep the good food flowing...
