I was just in awe when I saw that necklace. My favorite colors are green and blue, I only wear silver, opal is my birthstone and - yup - I love spiders. :heart:

I actually wondered how we could incorporate a lot dew drops into a web. We currently haven't figured out how to make it look right. When we do you can count on seeing one in the future:) Thanks.

Yeah, you want lightness, but a lot of settings add chunkiness. Hopefully you can figure something out...

That is awsome!! You are very talented!!! I wish my school offered Jewelry Making so I could make awsome necklaces!! But sadly it doesn't, so I must admire yours and make do with my wire bending fun. ^^

Jessica and I taught ourselves silver smithing and other aspects of jewelry making. Don't let what your school offers limit you on what you want to do. You can always buy your own books and teach yourself. Both of us are examples of self taught artists.

Self taught? Now I'm REALLY impressed! *bows to your awsome skills* Self teaching is what I normaly due with my crafts, it's just finding time between work and school at the moment that is difficult. ^^'''''
