Mail from Oz

Look!!! Is this GORGEOUS??

It's KNITTED. Yep, you read that right. It's knit with wire. (Knitted with wire? You knitting word nerds help me out here.)

My sweet friend Veronica (from Australia) sent it to me. When she was here in November, she was knitting a wire bracelet with beads, and I was in awe. I immediately remembered a couple of necklaces I had hanging in my closet that I never wear... necklaces that I bought several years ago from my friend Victoria who was (is) a jewelry maker. But because of my stupid ugly thyroid goiter (ew, I hate that word!), I can hardly stand to wear necklaces anymore, so I don't. But anyway... I still have Victoria's necklaces because I couldn't bear to part with them. They're made of wonderful beads, including Swarovski crystals. I happily gave them to Veronica, saying that I'd love for them to go to a good home, and that I knew she would give them new life. I added that she could make me a bracelet with some of the beads someday. ;)

Someday came today!! I love it. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it.

In fact, i LOVE it! :D

Thanks, V. Makes me miss you all over again. MUAH!

MUAH! Right back at you!

I am so glad you like it. Some more will come your way, eventually...I kind got off those knitted wire bracelets for a while so I could sew some bags ;) But I will get back to them.

Wonderful people deserve wonderful things. I'm glad V could do this for you.

That is just beautiful, and the colors in it would go great if you wore it to a Green Bay Packer game :).
