Sparkle Away

The 'shiny' reference was a nod to my favorite TV series/movie - Firefly and Serenity.  Come on, space cowboys, Nathan Fillion and Joss Whedon's witty banter, what's not to love?  Tina Lamasney was the only one to guess right, obliviously a fellow Browncoat.  Tina please email me your mailing address.

2. With the wire left from the headpin, form a loop and string on the spacer, disk bead, spacer.  Trim wire and form a loop.
3. Connect to the crystal dangle.  String on the earwire,  Use pliers to close the loop on the earwire.

Oh yes. Those are divine! I wish that I had time for television, because those sound like fun shows to get hooked on. I am only hooked on Project Runway. Let's start a Project Jewelry Designer. Good complement, don't you think!? Enjoy the day, Heather!
