I taped them down to my scrap piece of nickel silver (the left over piece from my class at Ornamentea).
I decided that I did not like the "&"s down the middle, so I did Lauren's without those. Betsy and her husband have the same first initial, so I just stamped the "B"s all over the center of hers which ended up being my favorite one.
I'm ready for the next project!

On a more exciting note, I was plaing with my wire weaving all week long!

The recipe was really simple and my husband thought it was great:
2 Tbsp. canola oil
1 large sweet onion, sliced
2 tsp. ground cumin
3 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1-1/2 qt. chicken broth
1-3/4 cup Dannon® Plain Yogurt
2 Tbsp. chopped parsley or cilantro
1/4 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
1.In a soup pot heat oil. Add onions and cumin and sauté 3-4 minutes. Add potatoes and chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer soup 20-25 minutes.
2.Puree soup with 1-1/2 cups Dannon® Plain Yogurt and parsley or cilantro. Serve each portion of soup with a dollop of remaining yogurt and a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds.
12 Servings (8 oz. per serving)
And here are a few views of the pendant I started and finished last week. This was a fun one and I plan on more woven wire pendants in the future!

Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add sausage in a single layer; cook until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Turn and cook 1 minute more. Transfer to a plate lined with papertowels.
Add onion and bell pepper to pan; saute until soft, 3-4 minutes. Add garlic, cumin and oregano; saute 1 minute more. Stir in beans, broth, and chipolte; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine sour cream, lime zest, 1 tsp lime juice, and honey in small bowl.
Transfer 1 1/2 cups soup to blender and puree. Stir puree back into soup; add sausage. Stir in remaining lime juice and season with salt to taste. Serve and top with lime sour cream.

I just love making butterflies out of coquina shells! I used 20 gauge wire to make the antennae. The cockle shell backing of the pendant is the same square shape that I found on the beach, but I did drill two holes in it to attach it to the chain.

the large stone hearts,
small jars of stone chips,
and pieces of argonite.
I can't wait to begin playing with these!
