Good morning LJ!  
Did everyone enjoy their long weekend, here in the states? I sure did! Friends from the Seattle area came down and stayed. We BBQ'd and saw Terminator: Salvation, which was extremely disappointing. Without spoilers, I guess the easiest way to explain it is this: I was bored. BORED, watching a Terminator movie. Christian Bale and Sam Worthington were very pretty. There were a couple of scenes in which Christian's skin tight black T-shirt that managed to distract me from my boredom, but other than that...I'd suggest waiting and renting it.

Coming off the awesomeness that was Star Trek only made this experience more disappointing, I'm afraid. We may have to own the score, as it was by Danny Elfman and surprisingly, held many of the original themes.

This also only makes me more bitter about FOX canceling SCC. You know, an actual good continuation of the Terminator story.

My other big accomplishment of the weekend was making a necklace to go with a dress I'll wear in Vegas. I needed something red, because though the dress is black, i plan on wearing red shoes with it. Garnet and pearls .

And the back, with a lovely counterweight in pearls, rosettes, and a garnet nugget:

Very similar to my Galeria necklace, but with garnet instead of chalcedony and citrine. The lighting was poor this morning, but the garnet nuggets actually have some really awesome texture and sparkle behind the polish and faceting.

Now I just need earrings to go with it. :D

What a GORGEOUS necklace that is.

(I have no patience for wire-wrapping. I'm glad other people do!)
