What a fantastic necklace you got from Jeanette! wow. And the one you sent to me is my all time favorite. I'll be posting about it soon. Just gotta show it off. I'm dying to wear it (haven't yet 'cuz -- well -- it didn't really go with Christmas, ya know. LOL) thanks so much for it - you went beyond! You are the ultimate friend.

What great holiday fun! I love the necklace Jeanette made for you--lucky girl! Very unique! Your gift was extraordinary-- dark, complex, creepy and elegant! Some wonderful contrasts there.

Diane Folks

Your swaps are so much fun to read about. Even though I'm not involved in them, I feel excited each day to check your blog and see what wonderful creations have come your way. What a talented bunch you are!


I know the pride and consideration that Jeanette put in to your piece...Jeanette shared with me little details along the way in creating a necklace that would be just right for you. Her work is incredible and just flawless.
And the Monkey's Paw necklace is such a work of art jewelry! I am sure it will always be treasured. :-) I can imagine it was hard to give up - but going to such a great new home.

What a fun group you had there! I have enjoyed seeing the big reveals. I love what Jeanette made for you. How wonderful that it is affecting all the senses! I love what Jeanette does and have been blessed to get to know her this year. I think that the monkey paw is such a creepy good time! Very unique. I love that etched metal piece...
Wishing you more blessings than you know what to do with in the coming year. Merry Christmas to you and your family, Deryn.
Enjoy the day!


gorgeous pieces! beautiful work!

Oh, I love the choker! The jingle would have me hooked! I love a little noise when I walk~LOL!
That is the point isn't it, to receive a piece you wouldn't normally design yourself?
I love your Monkey's Paw Necklace too~ I knew Sally had good taste =)

Deryn, I am happy you like the necklace. I forgot to include the extra links for the necklace in case it needed to extended a little, I will get them in the mail to you..
Have a wonderful holiday.

Deryn -

What a wonderful post. I love the piece Jeanette made for you - just beautiful! And the piece you made is so perfect for Sally that I have a hard time believing you didn't originally design it with her in mind!

Again, thanks so much for participating in this swap - I can't wait for next year!

Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year to you and your family.

:-) Molly


That is really such a beautiful necklace! It's perfect for you :) And the monkey's paw story, I've been looking for actually, and there it is, right in your link! I don't wonder Sally loves it, it -is- a spectacular piece of work.
