We won't hear back from the Dr. until Saturday. But so far so good.
In the meantime I thought I would post a bit of Spring wishfulness. I don't think that is a word but I always am wishful for Spring. I think that is my favorite season because I love flowers so much and in the Spring they are everywhere.
This is a necklace I finished using beautiful shades of Spring greens that remind me of the first green buds of the season.
The main ingredient is antiqued brass metal I used in the chain and other elements.
I used green glass beads with bead caps for the stations of the chain.
This is a lariat style piece, however the length in front is not adjustable as it appears. Actually the buds that dangle through the ring are attached in place with a jump ring.
For the circle I used a solid ring in back and an open work metal circle on top.
Here is a close up of the center rings and bud attached.
From the center circles I attached a length of chain that I use to connect the various leaves and buds.
For the larger bud I used the antiqued brass floral bead cap with a Lucite green flower inside, green bean then a Czech glass bead.
Farther down the chain I used a very tiny Lucite flower and a couple of different green beads for the tiny buds.

The back of the chain has a decorative metal clasp that is really only for decoration since this is a very long piece that easily slips over your head.
So now we will all just keep dreaming of Spring although I am loving the rain we are receiving after 4 long years of drought. I used to complain when I saw cloudy skies. No More. Because without the dreary winter there are no beautiful Spring meadows of flowers I so look forward to seeing. Not to mention it is really nice not to worry if we will have drinking water in the coming months. So come on rain, I have learned my lesson. I will love the rainy season, too,
