Instant gratification  

Sunday, July 15, 2007





I stole this subject from my friend Alex, who told me yesterday, upon my complaint that my wire wrapping skills take so long to develop, that as a Taurus, I need instant gratification, quick results, and that's why I don't see myself progressing so well. How true, LOL!

So this morning I put aside for a few minutes the wrapped loops and did these pairs of earrings. No great by all means, but did wonders for my instant gratification needs *grins*.

Later in the afternoon...
Here is my somewhat wearable wrapped briolette. I've killed a lot of wire and cracked another bead until I got this far. But finally I have one that doesn't cry 'yiuck'. Or does it?

    Thx Amber :) Not sure what the stone is in the pendant, but it sure looks like Amber :) Lol, no wonder you noticed it!
    I'm wearing it right now at work, with a green blouse and it's great!

    I used to know quite alot about stones, gems etc but my brain had to throw some stuff out to make room for learning German...so I have lost alot of knowledge ;)

    I think the stones in the middle top are called Tiger eye. I remember this because I once had something with this in and all it did was bring me bad luck...so I always stay away from it ;)

    Yup, they're tiger eye. I love this stone, apparently it's one of the stones for Taurus (me being one). I have at home a pendulum from tiger eye, really cute looking :) Sorry you're not lucky with this stone :(
