Joy and Dismay

The football season is over. I love football season. My friend Steph made an off hand comment recently about me not being a football fan. Not true. Not at all. Just not a hometown team fan. When I grew up I didn't have a hometown team. So, if you were a football fan, you found your own team to love. I am so very happy that the Giants won the Super Bowl last night. You don't want to know how much disdain I have for Bill Beliceck. I would personally find it fun to flog that fat cheater myself.
I was asked to make a little something for a charity auction. I made the matching bracelet and earrings, but can't decide on the necklace. I made a focal bead just for this necklace, but can't decide if I like it. The silver is clean in real life, not tarnished like it looks here. I use sterling silver and the swarovski crystals make this piece really stand out and shine, shine, shine. I am waiting for some silver chain I ordered to come in so I can finish this piece and deliver it to it's auction. I think the three piece set will do well for them.

Tell me if the focal bead should stay or go. I think without that bead, this piece is much more wearable on a daily basis.

I forgot to crop down the Hanna Stamps Moose at the top of this post. I love little Riley Moose in his chair, chillin' out and havin' hot chocolate. It's the kind of dayI would like to have right now. The paper is from Chatterbox and I colored him with copics.

I think it's pretty! But, if you were to take it off (I am a symmetrical beader) I would make one of the bigger beads the bottom front bead and work off the 2 sides of it.

Donna is right, if I take off the bead, I have to change up the necklace a bit. I could also put the focal bead as the center bead and work off of that idea.

I love it the way it is. I wouldn't change it. Some person is going to be a very lucky owner of those pieces!

HA! I just saw that the moose was sitting on the chair with his feet up...and in all the other ones, he isn't! Love that!
