My Assignment and More Jewelry for Civic Fest

The email came this morning. I am going to be assigned to the White House area of exhibits. I don't know which one yet, but I could be assigned to the White House Rose Garden. I guess that this will be at the entry way to Civic Fest. Other possibilities include: First Ladies' Gowns, Presidential Entertainment, the Oval Office and Oval Office Diaramas, and the White House. This looks so exciting! I guess that visitors to the Oval Office will get to sit at the Presidential desk and sign a bill into office. They will also receive a commemorative photo. As a visitor, I hope to do that! I don't know where I will be assigned to work, but I plan to have the greatest jewelry there. How's that for a transition to beads and beading? I have another bracelet and necklace to show you. I made this bracelet by stringing hollows together with bicone crystals between them. The hollows are big and bulky and bright! This bracelet looks great on the wrist!

I made this necklace by stringing together a lot of left over beads. I used seed beads to separate the beads from one another. I used a toggle to clasp the necklace. It's about 18" long. It really looks great on. The best part of it is that I can put the toggle on the front or wear it in the more traditional way with the clasp to the back. Now how fun is that? I can hardly wait to wear my new jewelry.
