Hearty Party

The ideas are coming fast and amazingly different in feeling and style.

Here's another necklace by Lorelei Eurto using one of the little hearts I've been making. She's entered it into the monthly challenge over at the Art Bead Scene blog - you should enter a design too, you might win something wonderful.
And she used some of my hand dyed ribbon strip. Just love all the little buttons, don't you?
 Very spring-like pastel colors, too. Like a robin's egg blue.
 When I make the charms, I have no idea what they'll go become.

Maybe jewelry, or a cellphone charm.
 A purse decoration, or a zipper pull hanger.
 A pair of earrings.
Gift wrap bling.
 A scrapbook project ornament.
 A Photo ID lanyard dangle.
 So many possibilities. Can you think of some more?
 So it's really fun to see the photos later, it makes me want to come up with more different designs so folks will think of even more creative ways to use them.
This necklace is by Sue Kennedy, with ceramic beads and another of the heart charms.

I've got to find time to just sit and make up some designs myself.
 I want to have some fun, too! Can't wait until the work week ends and the fun times begin!

Lynn, thanks so much for putting my necklace on your blog! And for making such wonderful things!

Hey Lynn!
Thanks for showing my button necklace!
I can't wait to see what you start creating with your hearts and new pendants!
When can we expect this to happen btw??
You take some time and have some FUN!

Lynn, I just wanted you to know I took the little heart charm off because I felt it distracted from the beauty of your heart pendant! I am much happier with it now!

I just wanted to tell you that I think your charms are wonderful and extraordinary!

Hi, hearty crew! (sorry, couldn't resist yet another bad pun LOL)

Where have I been, you might ask? Well, in dead cable modem land. What? No internet ... no email ... eyes glazing over!

The repair crew is supposed to come soon, in the meantime I'm offline a lot of the time. Unbelievably difficult ... I MISSED you!

I sure love the button necklace. What an imaginative way to mount buttons on a ring like that! The heart charms are the perfect accompaniment to both necklaces. Just enough Old World Charm (sorry can't resist puns either) to really set these pieces off! ~Cindy Lietz

Hi, Cindy L., if we crack open that punster door, who knows what will pop out, LOL! Yes, the old world look attracts me, I find myself gravitating toward that 'faux-tique' look often.
