    I found the original posts - they're in the GSS Strand thread from a few weeks back - Pearl Dreams initially mentioned that they were on Rio, and JerseyPearl gave them a big thumbs up. So thanks, ladies, for your recommendation!!

    and 12+ strands, whew! I don't know if I'll ever have the gumption for something like that But then again, a few years back, I made a costume top that was entirely made of wire-wrapped moonstones and scalemaille/chainmaille... so I can get pretty crazy

    Beautiful necklace.
    Do you know the ref. Number of the Lindstrom pliers? I have seen three different round nose from them when I googled .5mm.
    Thanks

    There is, and I can, as long as people don't mind that I'm wearing nothing under it... the requisite bits are covered with scales, but I'm baring a significant bit

    Actually, now that I've looked, it's on my husband's Flickr account, and it's set to public, so here's the link:

    As long as you're not offended by my showing off the girls, feel free to click through!

    Jesscat,

    WOW! After seeing your costume, I'd say you could design just about anything! Truly an engineering feat!

    Yes, those are the pliers I bought also. Lindstrom tools are favorites of mine.

    Thanks so, so much, pattye, la_corsetiere! That top was many, many hours of work over a month's time... don't even want to think about the hours wrapping every one of those stones hahahaha! I also didn't know how to wire-wrap well back then, so that didn't help. But my trusty dressform was invaluable when draping all the chains and maillework Still - I definitely made a statement at the event I went to! It was a May Day event, so hedonistic barely-there looks were in fashion, but I still stood out. I hear about it to this day

    Jesskat, your latest statement necklace is very cool. I love the scalemaille/chainmaille work you did on that costume! I'm sure it did stand out.

    That is an amazing costume, jesskat! I can not imagine the hours of work involved.

    My eyes were crying when I saw how detailed your costume was! No wonder everyone was talking about it. It's very unique and looks great on you.
