Another All New Materials

Cool morning, beautiful blue sky - had a craving for some homemade beef veggie soup.  Only problem with that was, I had everything to make it except for the ground beef.  Did not really want to make a trip to the store, but kept thinking about the soup.  One small problem - Actually a VERY large problem!  See that big crane in that picture!  Yeah! The picture way  up yonder !  Sorry - trying to adjust to the new and improved interface.  Well anyway, that big crane (being used to work on the roof next door) was attached to a HUGE truck  about the size of a 18 wheeler, flat bed truck, and guess where that truck was parked?!? Right smack dab behind my car !!!  Well - thought about asking  one of them  if "they" could please move the truck (at their convenience) so I could get out. Never mind - took a look at the crew I would be speaking with, and decided that homemade beef and veggie was not so important after all.
What would I have done if I had an appointment?  Smiled and asked nicely, and the whole time praying that big guy operating that monstrosity was not as mean as he looked !! :-D

Figured it was about as good a time as any to experiment with the new interface - never mind the fact it was also a good time to do a bit of housework.  Guess what won.........

Actually, I started this post a while back and never got around to finishing it up.  Also, retook pictures of the finished necklace, as I was not satisfied with the other ones.
I used all new materials - some with a vintage look to them.  Before.........
I glued the 3 rhinestones on this piece - think I may need to get my eyes checked...

I attempted to wire wrap  the copper colored beads, but have since redone them with a regular loop. I need to practice the wrapping more.  Took this pic before I redid them.

 Finished necklace.......


The rhinestones are not blue - just the way the sun reflected.

Bit of a closeup.

See, good things happen when you're stuck behind a crane:-) Love your pretty necklace and the way you displayed it on the pumpkin. Love it!

Sue said...

I love how you displayed the necklace on the pumpkin...very creative.

I think it is so rude that the workers parked behind your car and mean or not...I would certainly ask them to move it! I made chicken and noodles with mashed potatoes last night. The cooler weather had me wanting some comfort food too!

Dropping by from Claudia's Favorite Things linky party, honey. Nice to meet you.

Donna said...

Love the necklace and the way you displayed it on the pumpkin.
Veggie soup sounds yummy!
How inconsiderate that they blocked you in!
Have a wonderful weekend.

Hi Glenda! Visiting here again from Claudia's Favorite Thing Saturday. Beautiful work. I am in awe at the skill and patience it must take to produce these beautiful pieces.

Thanks for stopping by visiting Renaissance Women. I just discovered your comment this last week in the moderation queue. Vacation and all that. Thanks for the lovely comment.

Have a great weekend.

Hi Glenda,
so glad to see you are making some pretty little creations! Thank you for stopping by my blog to take a peek into my London trip. I have many more pics to post, but this new blogger setup is about ready to get the best of me! Take care and have a great week coming up.

Your necklace is lovely. My hubby and I own a construction business and as an interior designer I have to work with construction guys quite often. Don't be intimidated by them. While most of them have that tough guy attitude, many of them are really very sweet and love to help a damsel in distress. If feminine wiles fail, bribe them with fresh baked cookies!

So pretty! I love how you've displayed it on the white pumpkin. You could really make some beautiful, 'glammed up' pumpkins for display, Glenda!

BTW, I found someone who stole one of my posts and photos! She refuses to take down the post even after I've warned her twice. Not sure of my next step.

Glenda, the necklace is beautiful. How rude of that work truck driver to park behind your car! You would think they would have asked if you needed to get your car out. laurie

It's a beauty Glenda and I love it draped on the pumpkin. It's as if Cinderella placed it there after returning from the ball. Thanks for sharing with SYC. Love to see your creations.
