I made this necklace a week or two ago as a gift for a friend. I was pretty pleased with the way it turned out. You can see the picture from my pattern-a-day calendar that was the inspiration. I found it funny that it was actually difficult to do a random pattern. I am so used to making everything into a pattern that I had to try hard to stay random and found it almost a struggle. It is funny how so much of our lives is patterned and how much of a refreshing struggle it can be to embrace true randomness.

I have reached a point of boredom lately due to the fact that I have some physical limitations, what with being all big and pregnant now. I go from feeling so magical and appreciative of my baby growing inside of me to feeling so frustrated with the limitations on my physicality right now. The wonderful thing is knowing that it is all temporary and I will be jumping and running again soon, but this also makes me a touch sad since that will mean that my time of pregnancy will be over and I will most likely never experience this again. Life is full of duality and I guess the key is to focus on the positive as much as you can. So in that light, I am very happy to be nuturing this baby inside of me and I feel very blessed to have had this magical experience twice now in my life.

BEAUTIFUL necklace!!! You do nice work. And who wouldn't want a gift like that ... it's one of a kind. Anyone can buy a piece of jewelry. Keep up the good work ... on the jewelry but even more so on "growing that baby"!
