DJ/Radio Producer-turned-Lawyer attempts to dress like a grown-up. Sometimes I comically fail. And I occasionally post fun stuff, like music videos, book-club reviews, or photos of beauty or oddity.
FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.

Delivering on my promise

of posting close-ups for my "Oompa-Loompa" post. I made the jewelry at the local bead shop, but the large pendant was a gift from Mom.

I didn't think the cord it came on was office-friendly-- my clients often drive me to despair, so having a rope around my neck could get ugly quick! So I got ambitious (and really bored one afternoon) and went for a less "suicide-friendly" construction.



I went with a differently shaped but still matching bead for the earrings, to avoid being too "matchy-matchy". The only thing I don't like about the necklace is that the smaller discs tend to flip around, and won't lie flat. Suggestions?

Even though I don't normally like browns and tans, because "swimming in mud with my hygeine-challenged clientele" is not my favorite look, the combination of pattern and texture saves me from being bored to death:

  1. What a pretty necklace! I would be playing with those discs.

    Is there some way you can make your pictures smaller? I can only see 1/2 of them.

    Thanks so much for commenting on my blog! I really appreciate it. :)

    Cheers,
    Sheila

  3. The necklace is pretty. I'm impressed that you made it yourself. That's a skill I'd like to learn.
