Both my first name and my last start with a B.  When I went with my husband to the wrecking yard last weekend, I was wandering around being a little (okay, who am I kidding, kind of a LOT) bored when I saw an emblem on a car that had a really pretty cursive B in it.  (I'd tell you what the name of the car was, but we couldn't pronounce it...maybe Bizratti? I can't remember now...) Anyway, I found some other cool things - I wasn't bored after I started looking around, lol - and the wrecking yard guy only charged me $3 for all my little treasures.  I was pretty happy!  This is the only thing I've had time to work on so I thought I'd post it.  It took a while to scrape all the dried up glue and stuff off the back of the B, but it was worth it.  Wanna see?





And, a really junky one of me wearing it in my bathroom mirror, so not only is the flash going crazy but the B is also reversed, lol...but you can kind of see how long I made the necklace.  It's just one of those bead chains but I really love it.

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Don't be scared!  Just take a crow bar and a guy or two.  They will probably look at you like your nuts but it was such a fun adventure that I can't wait to go back!
