Just Roll with it Babe!

Had fun making this for a friend who
 is slated for surgery.
Hopefully this will bring a smile on her face.

Today's Creation

Started on this months ago for the 
Jewelry Stringing magazine 
It just wasn't coming together the way I wanted it.
Needless to say I did not submit it.
 Today I got tired of seeing it laid 
out  on the bead board and some what put together.
I thought of the old  acronym
KISS ... Keep ISimple Sweetie.
(normally we say stupid but I'm tired of beating myself up)
So I took the the triple strand connector off 
the necklace and used it for the bracelet.
The remaining part of the necklace was done.
Just lying there for months... 
as if asking, "when are you going to finish me?"
I just changed the focal I had on it because it was whimpy.
I'm pleased with the change and I am even more pleased
 that  I can now clean up and put back 
all the items I had pulled out to make this.

Feel free to leave a comment
If not thanks for looking.

Just got a really cool gift in the mail today!
I'm like...I didn't order anything?
What could it be?
My friend Deb (aka my personal "mad tatter")
tatted these cuffs for me!
I Love them!
I have a silk suit jacket that these will look great with.

She had sent me a photo earlier of a cuff
stacked with a multi-strand leather wrap
bracelet. I said it was cool.
I had no idea she had made these.
Sneaky girl.
I still buzzing over these!
