This post is for 'lush friday show and tell' hosted by Andrea . It's something new I'm trying out, and thought Liz's necklace would be a great first show and tell, as I have been working on it all week!

All I did for this necklaces was loop jump rings together so it dangled down from a 18in chain, and attached "fall color" beads in a plain loop onto each of the jump rings. They overlap and hang at different levels.
I wore the necklace last night as Justin and I met some friends for supper, that's right, I say supper instead of dinner! We went out for Thai food at Chiang Mai Thai in Calhoun Square in Minneapolis.

Here it is with the side doors open showing the hanging space I have.
Otherwise, the drawers are full!
I decided it's time to let some of my necklaces hang, as they are intended, and made a space for them on the bedroom wall. I took four cork board pieces, covered them with material, using a stapler to secure the material to the board on the back, and attached red and black ribbon to enhance the look. I use tacks to hang my necklaces, and voila! It's done!
If you choose to do this, I recommend nailing these to the wall - it gets quite heavy with all the necklaces, and could fall down - it will fall down!
This too is getting a little crowded - any ideas on what to do now?

I bought this cross for my Pastor Margaret right after she gave me quite a few beads to use for making necklaces.
While talking to her a month ago at a baby shower held at my church, she had told me that she picks turquoise beads when she sees them - and I saw this cross and knew I should get that for her as a "thank you" for the beads she had given me.
I didn't want to do an extreme amount of turquoise, as I felt it might be a little too much, so I went with frosted stones, brownish/clear colored beads, and turquoise stones as an accent. Like my very detailed description? :-)
I'd make my students re-write this paragraph using more "showing" words instead of "telling" words. Paint the picture for the reader, I'd tell them. I would then get blank stares, and the occasional response of, "This is English, not Art." I'll work on describing my necklaces better in later posts...

This necklace was requested as a gift for someone, and referenced the necklace I made for my sister Kyrstin (A Mirror of What You Feel Inside) as wanting something similar to that.
I took wide-hole chain and laced some black chain through it, and attached some black seed beads to that chain to add some dimension.
My favorite part is the beads hanging from the open circle pendant - as it looked to plain without them.

Here are the three Bodenburg girls at a wedding. Kyrstin (the oldest) is on the left, http://www.seewhatwedidtoday.blogspot.com/, I'm in the middle, and Kinsey is on the right. I have two older brothers, Boyd and Blake - but no need to picture them now!

Made for my sister-in-law Carrie, I went with colors I loved. She didn't have anything specific in mind, so I got free range.
