To Keep Them Sweet – finished

The whole thing. I need to make some backdrops for the light tent.
Chris got me the tent for a present, and it makes a HUGE difference in the quality of the light in close-up shots – but I’m still figuring out it.

Close-up on the ends.

This is how it looks hanging around the neck.

    I am sorry I have run out of appropriate adjectives.

    That is beyond words incredible.

    Not just in the detail and beauty, but it is absolutely inspired.

    Unbelievably beautiful! Your workmanship is just incredible.

    Where did you get the pendant and the leaf findings, btw? I’ve never seen that kind of leaf-with-holes thing, but it’s a *great* idea!

    This is too fantastic! What’s it for?! I’ve been trying to read the ribbon and haven’t managed to get very far. I so grok this piece!

    I’m going to wear it to things like the fancy dinner at the Contemporary Handweavers of Texas Convention, and make people’s eyes bug out. 🙂

    When I go to all these handweavers things, all the ladies have these fantastic scarves and shawls and hand-made tops… and I’m just not quite enough of a Big Queen to wear most of that kind of stuff. I wanted a token of technical achievement, a badge of proficiency.. something that says, “Hey, I Know My Sh*t” in fancy language.

    Kewl! I hope to see you in pictures of it soon, preferably with a tux, looking like the Honorable Lord Mayor of Silk Spinners and Weavers. And I strongly suggest a second one, with ‘Hey, I Know my Shit’, in Latin, of course….. (snorting). But truly, it is gorgeous and you should be vastly proud of it.

    Hmm… you know, it DOES sort of look like a Lord Mayor’s Chain of Office. What a funny coincidence!

    I want to make more necklace-ribbon type things like this; might have to look into getting somebody to translate some Latin for me.
