Thank you, Grannystylee.
Hoxierice, that choker you got from Frosty772 is very similar to the two choker's I've made and it looks very elegant yet punkish (and I  l o v e  punkish stuff). I've made mines on nylon but this one seems to me to bi made on wire. Am I right? I suppose it'll keep shape better that way. Frosty, very, very nice work. And the bag... I have a friend who'd love to have it.

Im so glad that you liked the choker!!  Its the second project ive ever completed to I was very very worried about it turning out right.  I swear I spent a week or more trying to find a beaded project I felt comfortable doing (my limited skills that is) with beading.  Im quite pleased with it!!  As far as presentation.  Dont worry about it.  Sometimes I wrap.....Sometimes not like I should.  No biggie!!!  I will try to get a pic of your lovely choker ASAP.

Cayca I have seen some of your necklaces/choker on here!!  Very lovely!!  Its (the one above)is made with Silver Tiger Tail (at least thats what the bead gal told me.... name is not on the roll).  I was a bit worried it was too stiff for the necklace but maybe its meant that way and just my inexperience still LOL.  The bag was made from scraps that I had (and desperately needed to clear out Cheesy)

Thank you everyone!! Im glad you liked it

<b>Like what you see here??  It might be in my shop!!<b>

The choker nasty_wench made looks even better in person if you can believe that!  The tear drop beads are faceted.  I love all the shades of green!  It fits perfeclty, funny thing my first attempt at a project used the excat same ribbon but black!   When my hair is down you only see the beaded part.  This is very well made and so cute!  I'm wearing it to work tomorrow.
    The clothes pin doll is adorable!  All packed up pretty and everything, I am very pleased!!

altair, very cool! Reminds me crochet, actually.

So many beautiful chokers!
I agree Fleur I have seen a similar design with crochet. It's on my to do list (which will never get done!).
