Dancing Dangle

I finished this necklace last night, rather this morning at 6:30am. I have been whipped all day long because of my insomnia. I had to go the doctor to schedule a mammogram which will be next Wednesday. I am being a good girl and checking in every six months since they found two lumps & at my age I just need to keep an eye on the two "headlights". When I was laying down during the last cat scan I looked at the screen and it looked like a set of head lights & I began to giggle to my self. So that is why I named them the head lights. (I may as well find some humor in these "thingys" growing inside my body.)
I regress.
The necklace is made from size 8 amber hexagon bead with copper colored bicone drops. I think it turned out quite showy for an understated piece of my work. {The "V" design was created by Mary DiMatteo for the June 2008 issue of Bead & Button Magazine. } The original designer called it the St. Petersburg Chain from years and years ago. There really is nothing "new" or completely original in fashion or in jewelry. It is just updated for the times that we live in now. I often wonder what my Great Grandchildren will be collecting that we take for granted today. I have also attached the Leaves on Leaves necklace and ear rings that I made a couple of days ago. I "think" these pictures show a closer color match to the beautiful strawberry mauve beads.

I have been having a lot of problems with my posts being updated on your blog rolls. Does ANYONE out there know how I can fix the problem? I have read and read and re-read all of the information on Google but it is not fixing the situation. Please help me out if you possibly can.
P.S. I "think" I MAY have found some of my problems. Dawn, at the Feathered Nest suggested that I lift some of the restrictions on my yahoo email address. Well, I did do that and it seems some of the restrictions kept my blog from showing you the updates. We will see....????? Thanks, Dawn, so very much for your patience & information. You are a sweetheart!Thanks for stopping by to see my latest...please leave a comment if you like either piece.

Your new post showed up on my blogroll tonight. I had realized a while back it wasn't updating so I just checked in every so often, but tonight it showed a new one, so you may have it fixed. Good luck on your "headlights". They say laughter is the best medicine so you've got the right attitude. Have a good night.
