(I figure this'll either be as hilarious to everyone else as it is to me, or it'll be a total miss... so I'll include something extra at the end to make up for the potential humor let down just in case)

some friends of mine have taken to saying "filthy" instead of neat/cool/sick
which really cracks me up
the thought of making a fancy brass victorian-chain-letter necklace that says "filthy"... I just had to..





classy

Ok so in case that actually sucks and I just need to sleep more or get more sun or something, here's something else I made, too:




Necklace and ring made from dyed wood disks and wire.

(Pardon my sunburn [Seattle's finally sunny!!])

I'd totally wear that. It's ironic, and reminds me of Pink Flamingos. I want one. Wink

hehe.
this did make me giggle because i was picturing proper victorian women at their social gatherings saying the parlor tricks going on around them were "filthy" all because of that necklace.
i think its better then the wooden disk jewelry just because its so unique.
but the wooden one is cool too.

Thanks! The letters were from the scrapbooking aisle at joann fabric's, about a year ago. They might still have them?
