I took a break..,.

from spacer-making to bring you this: lovely skull pendant. Now to decide on a cording? Beaded wire? Something, anything really, to hang him from. Love him lots! I don't usually keep the things I create, but this one might end up in my jewelry box. To be decided later :)

Skull bead made by me, of course!

chickens :) Here's Esme with Big Girl: Or Triple B (Big Black Bird) as my husband likes to call her.

And Big Girl with Coco.
They have been enjoying a little freedom, hanging out in the back yard.
I hear Henry had a little mishap with either the dog or a fox--but he's okay--just minus a few feathers. Sure wish I still had that guy around to keep these girls in line :) But we have rules in Lincoln, you know. Really--what's a little crowing compaired to my neighbor's car sans muffler?
On another note, more spacer sets are in the shop, and hopefully more tomorrow :)
