Finally...I'm doing something with all the seaglass and beach tile I've collected over the past 16 months. I've been wanting to wire wrap some of the beautiful glass and tile I picked up and make necklaces out of it. After a bit of badgering, Nancy Gerlach brought her box of goodies over to my casa and we figured out how to do it. The pendant on the right side with te heavier wire was the first one. We quickly decided to switch to a finer gauge so we didn't tweak our fingers! I think they came out great, and so did a bunch of other gals. This Thursday we get to do it again. Fun, huh? As Chief says, " Good utilization of resources."

This is our out-of-control bougainvilla. It's not even a year old! It grows like crazy by the front door because of the rich composty earth that Chief concocted. It's really neat looking out of the house and seeing it arch over the door. One bad thing: thorns an inch and a half long. One good thing: those thorns deter the casual intruder!
