... I love organic shapes, especially trees and leaves, so this is perfect for my! just my taste!!!

I noticed a lot of flowers, branches, birds, etc in your wists  Wink  and thought of that particular toggle clasp immediately! If you look real close at the little circles they have hearts on them...  Cheesy

This is awesome, because the hemitite beads are magnetic, so when i don't feel like wearing it as a bracelet, it can be worn as a necklace or anklet! very awesome...
 

I love doing up those hematite lengths, especially with quality stones or beads (that one is amethysts and garnets). I know you said you didn't like bracelets because they were difficult to wear at your work, but figured a bracelet that could immediately become a necklace or choker would be OK. They are so darn versatile!

awesome cluster earrings! these are amazing, i wish a picture could do them justice! they are a little heavy, so i might take off a few strands and make a second pair of earrings out of them, i'm not sure. i don't want to ruin them! i'm going to leave them as is for a while and see if i can't train my ears to hold them up. Smiley
i love everything! i'm so spoiled!!!

I put so much into trying to make you clusters - but I wondered how much was too much, LOL!

SO...  there are at least three to six different identical pieces on each pair that you can trim off and transform into drop earrings if you want, and I didn't solder the chains closed so you could decide how much was enough for yourself!

AND, she also sent a crochet scarf!!
...

I had to send a scarf - it isn't the cable knit you asked for, but at least it is the right color! I didn't get a pic of that but it was sort of a last minute "I am throwing this in because I ought to"

I do have a composite photo of the necklace and earrings here:


I don't think it is really a better photo though, you did fine!

I am so glad you like everything! It was hard to do a one THING with jewelry, but at least they all have garnets and amethysts so it was a one THEME package, LOL!

That necklace is amazing!!! 
I had no idea that there were magnetic things like that (I'm not much of a jewelry person... I don't even wear my wedding ring) but the idea behind it seems really versatile and practical!  I think the set is fantastic!!!  You did a great job, RondaS!!!

I recieved today, everything is so awesome!  I have to wait until the boy get home from work to get pics, my dogs like coming to the camera so it's almost impossible.  I recieved 2 really cute holiday bandanas for my dogs, a wrist pincushion *loves*, a doggie poo bag with a cute little poo on it lol, and the best is a doggie coat for my Kaptain so he won't get cold on walks in the winter!  Everything is really awesome, and the workmanship is amazing.  I'm so happy, now I can't wait for Laura to get my package, I hope she is just as happy.

I rec'd from EDEL: What a stupendously awesome swap!! She did such a beautiful job, the fabrics are gorgeous, purple goodness and I adore the handsewn/embroidered on Dragonflies... The chocolate has already been devoured by myself and the family...yumm yumm... Cadbury's Caramello tasted better than the ones I get here I swear! haha.

Thank you so much EDEL, YOU ROCK!!

I agree! I'm just recently learning how to sew, and lemme tell ya, my lines are almost ALWAYS wonky. Smiley
But what a WONDERFUL package that is! Such a pretty bag!!
