Random Stuff

Some random thoughts for today...

1. When Heather Wynn posted on her blog, sweet little necklaces that she made using Beth's HINT charms (here), I knew I had to have one of my own! So I sent my HINT charm, Saskia the owl, to Heather and she made me this! Using a sweet little 1800s button, and one of her signature Love Bravely stampings. It's nice because it flips, it's on the owl side, or on the Love Bravely side. Always something pretty showing! Now matter how you wear it!

Randomness No. 2:
I desperately need a haircut. Or maybe I should just grow my hair long again. ? This is a never-ending battle.

Randomness no. 3:

I created this funky modern charm necklace last night using a triangle charm that I had gotten from Nancy of Round Rabbit. It's kind of fun, and challenging due to the location of the holes in the charm, but this is what I came up with. Not sure how I really feel about it. So if you have any thoughts, leave a comment. This is THIS MONTH'S JEWELRY GIVEAWAY! HA! Didn't see that comin' did ya!!! Leave a comment on this post and I'll pick a random winner on Sunday evening (11/30)
And the final Random thing for this day, go read Andrew Thornton's blog. He's doing a fun trade and you don't want to miss out - He's trading his handmade trading cards, for whatever you feel is a fair trade. I already have mine picked out- BUT, there are lots more to pick from! I can't wait to see the kinds of things he ends up getting.

have a good tuesday!


  1. Hi Lorelei!

    I think the necklace is lovely and unique. I like how you added the group of beads at the lower corner.

    I'm off to cook and pack, have a great Thanksgiving!

  2. I really like th eunique shapes that Nancy has for her pendants.
    The color is a great shade of blue to wear everyday with a comfortable pair of jeans..my favs!
    I like the different charms you've added too. You are one of my favorite designers. Happy Thaksgiving to you and yours!

  3. I guess I am having a bad spelling day from the looks of that post!
    Whoa! HAHAHA

  4. I really like the randomness of the charm necklace. Real funky looking and I'm partial to old keys. They have a charm of their own.
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    Love the charm necklace! Thanks for your blog; I really enjoy reading it--

  6. I love the charm necklace! It looks fun and versatile. I just joined in Andrew Thornton's trade...thanks for giving the heads up on it! Have a very happy Thanksgiving! I'm off to pack for a trip to the Keys for the holiday - woo hoo!

  7. I love that you do this!
    Lovely necklace! It is such a wonderful mixture of textures, old and new, warm and cool colors, etc. Really lovely L!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    P.S. Regarding your hair, I personally love the flip style in your about me picture - my vote is to go with that.

  8. Oh, I just love how the necklace turned out! The combinations you put together are outstanding! Very, very cool!

  9. That necklace is beautiful. I just love the symmetry of it. I'm not a real everything in a straight row kind of person. Also, the good thing about hair...it always grow back if you don't like it. I love your blog and read it daily. Happy Holidays!

  10. That necklace is wonderful - does it make a slight jingle as you walk? I too never want to take the time to go get my hair cut. I'm now on an adventure to see just how much it will grow in one year. I'll cut it next August.

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful work with us.


  11. You're a fab designer, and I love your blog, too. Thank you for that.
    Have a happy Turkey Day!

  12. This necklace is very cool! I'm definitely partial to the charm necklace. Love all the little dangles!
    I also struggle with the hair thing myself. I'm growing mine out. I do like longer hair in winter.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  13. I like the necklace with the triangle charm, it hangs nice and the chain you used looks good with it.
    Hair..., it's the universal dilemma.
    I heard Tracy Ullman say that years and years ago, I'll never forget it...so true! :) Yours looks nice tho. Thinking of growing mine out some too, maybe it's the change of seasons.

  14. I love the necklace. I love as many dangles as I can get! Enjoy your blog and dig your jewelry designs. You have a unique style.

  15. I love the modern shapes tacked onto the triangle! This is definitely a super-unique piece, Lorelei. (:

  16. Gorgeous necklace L!!!! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

    What a fun neckalce with all the different components!

  19. I really like it - I think you should enter it into the steam punk challenge (art bead scene) since it's a mix of modern (triangle bead) and steam punk (key)!

    Love the necklace! In fact, love most of your stuff :) I can't tell you how many times I've been "this close" to buying! But I guess I'm saving it for something extra special that is sure to come! :)
