Sweet Tweet Jewelry

Okay, I might have gotten carried away with the glitter, BUT....I had a lot of fun playing with these Rings & Things findings today. Since they came in my Valentine's Day bead package, I thought it would be nice to incorporate them into Valentine jewelry.

I had mentioned the Necco Sweatheart Candy hearts recently and thought it would be fun to see if I could put one into jewelry.

So, here is the experimental, glittery necklace I came up with. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVED the "Tweet Me" heart.

Now, I am just assuming this is referring to communicating via Twitter, but I could be wrong. Regardless, it was perfect for the bird dangle.

The glue and mod-podge is still drying, so it is not yet connected to the pearls permanently. I am hoping to wear it tomorrow if everything adheres well.

I hope you are all having a fun weekend!! I'm counting down to Thursday, 1/21/10, which is the day my book, A Bead in Time, hits stores....yay!! I am so EXCITED and to be perfectly honest, I've had a moment or two of nail biting... :) I hope to have my book page link up in the very near future which will include info on where it can be found.

Ironically, I am now heading over to Twitter, hope to see you there!! If so, I hope you will "Tweet Me"! :)

I so enjoy your posts every day...The necklace is lovely and I look forward to the book...I've had a glance through it on Amazon...Now I need to see if it is available on (shipping charges and customs fees from th U.S. are a nightmare)

Anyway keep blogging and keep us informed.

SWEET TWEET! I love the green and there is no just thing as "too much glitter."
I want to be a R&T blog partner by-golly. You lucky duck.

I don't know how you do this everyday. I always imagine your jewelry box or is it a whole room now.

I love that dangling charm! I would never have thought of using that together to make such an original creation!

I got your book on Friday! What a delight. Will write about it in February when I have had a chance to look through it in detail.

Tweets refer to the 140 word postings that you can write on Twitter. Genius, really.

I love the green with the gold and pearls. The colors remind me of a tea party for some reason. Hmmm...
