thank you much, RockWaterFalls! as soon as i saw the pendant, i just had to have it. i bought a similar one in brown too...
sunshine11112, yours sounds just as lovely! but thank you
and lark, i really appreciate the advice...one of my sea shell necklaces came undone already, and i've been looking for something to fix it with, and i found nothing at jo ann's...i'll try to make a trip to my nearest michael's or look online for the things you mentioned...until then, i tied these knots extra tight and numerous times...maybe they'll hold up in the meantime!
thanks so much
