Today I made some oval beaded rings to substitute the ceramic ones, left the "survivors" - giving the necklace a slightly asymmetrical look, packed it with a double wrap of pluriball and instructions on how to unwrap it and, most of all, how to NOT toss it on the ground... I didn't even take a picture of it 'cause I was so scared to make another disaster! Now let's just hope it will arrive safe!!!

Ever seen this video? I feel a bit this way about my necklace! LOL Ok...from the beginning. Having had insomnia since ever and being a very light sleeper, I consider sleep in general as something sacred. I'm lucky 'cause my BF is, instead, a heavy sleeper, so when there's nothing I can do to fall in the arms of Morpheus, I can do whatever I want (watch a movie, have all the lights turned on, play a game) and he won't awake. I feel terrible when I have to wake someone up, even if that person has told me to do it. I hate it. So imagine how I felt tonight at 1 AM when, fixing a jump ring on my FINISHED necklace, almost going to pack it for the post office, it slipped from my hands and fell on the floor. I was leaning on the table for extra security, had been taking care of the ceramic components for a week trying to avoid THIS kind of catastrophy. But somehow the necklace fell between my body and the table. On the floor.

Today I sold my tiny white stars to my friend, who is the most perfect person ever to wear them! They really suit her and her dark hair make them pop out. It's nice when you find the right customer for your beaded jewels, or vice-versa! Meanwhile I have tons of things to finish... (Not that I can complain: my boyfriend is really understanding about all my "craftiness"....) So let me tell you which project I'm on simultaneously: -Just finished 2 more pairs of Paika earrings, one in a beautiful AB lilac Petra Carpreau:
