"The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence." Is it? Or maybe you just need to get up off your lazy ass and mow the lawn, water it, pull some weeds, fertilize it, take care of your own grass and stop looking over the fence.  ~~Craig Sanford

Woven Silver Chain

This is "spool-knit".  One continuous strand of very thin sterling silver wire woven over nails stuck in a spool and threaded through the hole and out the bottom.  You did that with a spool and yarn when you were a kid, right?  Haha!  This necklace was woven with 7 nails, so it's thick and substantial, it closes with an easy spring ring, and it measures about 22" long.  If you have pendants with really big bails you could wear them on this, but it's fantastic as a stand-alone accessory, too!   I make a similar chain woven with 4 nails--it's thinner and more delicate, but equally eye-catching!

I got this in an email today.  I've seen it before, and it makes me shake my head because it's one of those things that you think should go without saying, but it's NOT what's actually happening.  I would be in favor of this:

     ***Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution***

     "Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the
 United States that does not apply equally to all members of
 Congress, Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall
 make no law that applies to all members of Congress, Senators
 and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens
 of the United States."
