blingy goodness

I haven't made jewelry for some time now, and in the last while, it's my daughter that's tinkered with the collection of beads, wire, and chain stuffed in a drawer of the hobby room. I was compelled to pick up my pliers again the other day to repair an old choker I made about six years ago - or, not so much repair it, but enlarge it, because it felt kind of tight. I find that weird. I seriously doubt that the weight I've gained since then has made my neck actually fat, but really, it doesn't feel as comfortable as it used to. So I added a couple of links, and now it feels fine. Maybe it's my Incredible Hulk type traps. I should take another picture of these - in reality, they look quite a bit more lively and spring-y, not this firey and intense.

While I was at it, I figured I would go the quick and dirty route with some beads we picked up on clearance at Michael's. But now that I look at them again, they seem sad and lonely, so I need to find a way to spruce them up a bit - I've seen some simple pendent designs with ribbon that might be fun to try.

ribbon sounds like a great idea!
