Top jewelry components of '09!

December 31, 2009

Happy New Year! It’s Wednesday afternoon, and I’m adding your votes, live-blogging style! (My vote is “wood chain“. My R&T coworkers vote for “picture frame pendants“, “chain on spools“, “resin“…)

I bet this’ll turn out to be a nice shopping list for anyone who wants to make great jewelry. (Or to buy that person a birthday gift…) 🙂

    Thanks Andrea, Diana, and everyone else — this was such a fun experiment. Look forward to more live-blogging with R&T in the new 2010.
    PS, as I asked on Twitter this morning, how the heck do you say “2010”? Is it “20-10”, or “2000-10”, or even (I’ve heard) “2-10”? Tell me what the rest of our crafts community is saying!

    I say “two thousand and ten” but I just write /10.
    And I “second” the votes for both peace signs and gunmetal chain! (Even though that combo doesn’t quite sound right together…..)

      On a related note, I’ve heard two good suggestions for what to call the previous decade: the Naughties or the Oh-Oh’s 🙂
