L O N G Time Coming

I started this Lariat poolside in August and finished it last night.  What took me so long?  I only worked on it when I did not have to concentrate on anything.  I could mindlessly weave this one. The simplicity and the rhythm of this one really speak to me.  It is all about the color and the length.  And the possibilities.  I used 54 inches of a picasso mix and put pretty glass beads I got in Michigan at the ends.  I am getting a lot of mileage out of Michigan beads and rocks :-)

Here are a few ways to wear it (again, I apologize for photo quality...Eastern US=Grey Day) :













In other jewelry news~

I took Kim's Holiday Ornament she send for the Ornament Swap Hop and put it on a chain...YAY!  It will go back on the tree in December, but for the other 11 months, it will be worn on my chest :-)  What a beauty!






And lastly, Therese and I will have a She Made~She Made reveal on Thursday, February 28th.  We will be using these beads Therese picked for the occasion~fire cracked agate and Juli Cannon's Studio Juls heart.

I love the versatality of that lariat, especially when worn as a bracelet! That is such a pretty stitch! But...your ornament on a chain is so, so pretty! Great idea!

The colors in your lariat make me think of looking at pretty little rocks at the edge of a stream- very pretty!
