Musings of a Redneck Yankee

Hello my friends. Happy Sunday. It's going to be a quick post, because I still haven't decided what's for dinner yet.  I Got sidetracked by Nascar on TV.  Now there's something you didn't know about me.  Having had lived in Norfolk, VA for 7 years, I can't help but love Nascar (and Jeff Gordon, who just happens to be leading right this moment, and is due for a come-back).  As long as you're getting to know me better, some other things I grew to love while in Norfolk are Country Music and Chicken and Dumplings.

So now that you know me better, it's time to move on to my latest creations.  I've been playing around with Bicone Crystals and here's what I came up with.

I think I like the second pair better. After the first pair, I decided to play a bit with color. These earrings were really easy and quick to make. I plan on making up a few more pairs in different color combos to use up all the left-over bicones I have.  So that's about it for this week. I did whip up two quick peyote bracelets, but still need to embellish them and round up some matching buttons for clasps.  As usual, I hope you'll stay  tuned to see how they turn out.

By the way, Jeff Gordon is no longer leading the race and I have decided on a quickie (Yankee) version of Chicken and Dumplings for dinner.

TTYL and make it a good day,
Debbie

Oh I love making those wheels too! I also love Nascar and yes even though Jeff is not my fav he is deserving of a comeback.

Those are really pretty :) I haven't watched Nascar in years, but when I lived at my parents house he always had it on and I always rooted for Jeff Gordon :D

I had no idea you liked nascar. I lived in south carolina for a while, and went to a race one time (not sure what kind of race), just know I had dirt in my ears and nose for a week after! I live in a desert now, and have yet to inhale as much dirt as I did that day.

Love the earrings! can't wait to see the bracelet.
