Hi Everyone. I just wanted to let you know that all I have to do on Soleil is the crochet part. With any luck I'll have a picture for you on Wednesday. I went shopping aaaaalllllllllll day long with Grandmommy, and we had a fabulous time. We made a mandatory stop by the bead shop, and we bought enough beads for me to make us matching bracelets and a bracelet to match Soleil. I am on this total kick of making a bracelet to match every outfit. Why not right.

While we were shopping in Petite Sophisticate a girl admired the bracelet that I was wearing. She asked where I got it and I told her I made it. She totally freaked and said she wants to buy one. My friend Janette has also ordered a bracelet from me. I'm thinking I could make some extra money with this. Too cool!! I'm trying to get a good picture of the bracelet I was wearing in the store, but I'm having a hard time. You can't see the facets in the quartz beads. I'll try taking one in natural light outside tomorrow. Here is a picture of the bracelet I made my mom. She absolutely loved it!!

I used 6mm Emerald Swarovski Bicones and 14K gold findings. My mom love Emeralds and I though that she would appreciate a more simple bracelet. I was right. She'll be getting earrings to match soon.

My 10mm round Swarovski's finally arrived today so I can start on Grandmommy's set after I finish Soleil. She will be happy about that. We have been waiting for these for a week. Too bad I didn't find the new bead shop before I ordered them.

Well it's off to bed for me. I have to get up in FIVE HOURS! Argh! Hopefully I'll have the strength to finish Soleil tomorrow! Have a great day!
