Love this!  I see a lot of vintage that sort of "tries too hard" and of course that looks a lot the same because of the same Vintaj components used in similar ways, but this is very unique and of course I adore the drapey style.

Heh I have fond memories of going over the same bridge in Pittsburgh about five times to get to the stadium.  You can see it from everywhere but there's always three bridges and a tunnel between you and it. :) 

Jeanne, I miss Ohio sometimes but not city living, except for the shopping.  I NEVER thought I'd say this, but I miss the occasional snow (a dusting constitutes a snow day here) and summers where you could still breathe outside (the humidity here in TN is downright oppressive).

I really want to play with macrame, especially "micro-macrame".  These are both gorgeous.

Funny how craft fads come and go, isn't it?

Yep, I want to pet it.  And I'm thinking... niobium edging would be so pretty too.... (sterling and niobium together is my fave)

What's the total weight on this beauty, any idea?

Oh wow, awesome!  I have a fellow Wire Artisans Guild member who does wire critters... wish the wire was that cooperative for me.

This is so neat though!  More!

Do you still live in Cleveland?  Thanks for the answer about the kishka.  I don't like Polka music to be honest.

No, I moved four years ago to live here in rural Tennessee.  I like it much better.

Heheh... it's a sausage.  "Who stole the kishka" is a polka classic along with such wonderful titles as "In Heaven There Is No Beer" and "I Don't Want Her, You Can Have Her, She's Too Fat For Me"  (longer than the actual title, but you get the idea), and of course, Beer Barrel.

Had no idea there were polka music videos.  Polka is fun.   8)  I'm not Polish, but my step-grandfather is, and I'm from Cleveland, so I've done my share of polka-ing!

Mmmmm.  Thank you for bringing Scherzo to the world, I adore it.  Hadn't thought about earrings, though, these are gorgeous..... *ponder*  Wonder if I could micromaille this weave.

I don't know what type of rock it is, but you can see through it.  Thanks for liking it. :D
It is agate, and for your geology lesson the black thingies in it are called dendrites. Very good wrap too, Sometimes turn the rock so the big end is up and they are easier to get the little devils to stay in place ;D

Ooh, we have a geologist?  Is this quartz?  http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=19307567

By the way Jeanne, I really like the wrap - seems to fall somewhere between "freeform" and "straightlaced" and since I can never decide which of the two I like better it's awesome!

LOL... I think I might have to do the marble in a cage thing and then put it on a card that says "To keep you from losing all of them!"  Bet those would sell like crazy at craft fairs.


Saw someone selling a dollhouse stool in a jar that said "stool sample."  People buy the craziest stuff....

Guess I should've noticed the two rings sizes :)  I'll have to play with the math (ick!) and figure out what size to use with my 14g 3/8.  Where is that future engineer son of mine...

*ogles it again*  finely woven silver is just so dang sexy....

and I'm still in envy of your photos, always.

There's the contest... lots of amazing talent.  #6 was first place and #9 was second.

Thanks for the nice comments, everyone  :-*

Hopefully I'll get to the camera today, but 2 orders are keeping me from it (can't complain about that!)
