Sometimes, unexpected things happen, eh?

So we all remember this, right?

Well, the day after I took this picture, I picked up the necklace and the glass piece fell out. Ya. That sucked. If this goes into someone else's possession, it would suck to be told, "The red glass piece fell out." Tonight, I went back in to add another layer to the bezel and it's not going to fall out now. Now it looks like this:

I think at some point, I'll have to put up examples of different ways of doing the bezels on the main website. I need better pictures and some time.

I think I'll wear this out tomorrow.

Flower Meadow Shrug update - Sleeves are blocked. Back is blocking now. Sleeve cuff lacy portions are blocking. I'm still working on the lacy portion going around the body/sleeve border but I don't think I'll need to worry too much about blocking that one so no fear. I hope to have a new article of clothing before this weekend is over.

That cabachon is beautiful. I like what you added to it. Congrats to you for blocking the shrug! Now we can have a seaming party this weekend. :)

What a bummer! How could this happen? It looked quite fixed!!! Anyway, it still looks good now.

Can't wait to see the shrug on you, that's such a beautiful shade of green. Judy, count me in as future jewelry customer at your Etsy store. I'm hoping to get a sneak preview before you put them out there.
