Do you remember this line from Eric Cartman of South Park?? I just loved this guy!

Well I was having the exact same feeling while trying to make my first necklace!!
I was trying to make a necklace with a soft grey felt kitty, glass beads and wire and the thing was getting tangled all the time! It was my first attempt ever to make a piece of jewellery, using tools and stuff. I mean, I was always kind of a crafty person (see this post) but my talent was being restricted in mending broken necklaces and bracelets and never creating something out of scratch!!
So without further ado I proudly present my "No kitty....BAD KITTY" necklace incorporated in the outfit of the day! (I couldn't help but naming it after Cartman of course!)
|"No kitties were actually harmed in the making of this product" - thank you|
Now my sweet devoted readers is where YOU come in! I really need to hear some honest comments... Can you see any potential here?? If you were not the nice people that you are and you saw that in Etsy (let's say) woould you say it worths your 20 bucks? Would you wear it? Please be honest, I can take it! And please don't compare it to a diamond tiara either!
After a 3 hour fight with the kitty, I was inspired and as soon as I figured out how to use the tools and the other exoticly named components (such as clutch, crimp, clasp, jump ring, lobster, cord, loop e.t.c.!) I made 3 more necklaces, 2 pairs of earrings, 5 rings and 2 bracelets!!
Skirt - I&D bought from a local store
Top - tee from Calzedonia

(styled with beige fish-net tights, as seen here)Necklace - handmade
Other than that.... it's my birthday today! Done with 30, going to 31, feeling pretty much the same as 25... oh well, time flies! I guess I should celebrate the fact that I survived 30 years on this planet and the randomness of it all!! To birthdays then!!!
And since I'm getting rather philosophical here... does anybody else get the feeling that some sort of balance is trying to creep back in our lives, after many years of unbalanced situations?? (e.g. Middle East?). Or is it just me and my birthday blues?
I'll post soon about my other fantastic creations!! But for now....
