Anyone else Stalking Handy Hands lately?

One of the best things about making Jewelry is that you can make some the night before to match an outfit. These are made with Yarnplayer's Garden Party, first batch. It's too bad that you can't see how pretty the beads are in this picture. They are Top drilled bicone Swarovski crystal beads.
Something I have descovered---by incorporating a soldered jump ring at the top makes them swing better than attaching them to the earwires by a tatted ring. I just do a Lark Head Picot Join where I want the jump ring on the last round.
In reference to the title of this post, I have been checking in at Handy Hands, waiting patiently for the new colors of Lizbeth to arrive. It's probably a good thing that they are not available yet though. I need some ETSY sales before I can have any new thread. We are pinching budget pennies here in expectation of buying a home, so any purchases would have to be from my creative budget. I tried a showcase on etsy, got tons of views and hearts, but no takers. In fact, I better make a sale soon....I'll owe fees next month and paypal is empty at the moment :-)
