Rockin' Chicks

I don't know about other girls, but I loved Susie Derkins. She was Calvin's arch-nemesis - well, at least HE called her an arch nemesis, she always had a witty retort ready and she always creamed him but -good- whenever he hit her with snowballs. What isn't there to like?

This is one of the many, many reasons I love Susie. This + colour scheme in strip + weird brain = the Susie Derkins Earrings:


Susie Derkins: 22ga copper wire, pink-dyed mother-of-pearl beads, Czech glass beads, Patton's 'Willow' yarn, dyed shell discs, hand-hammered 22ga earwires.




Here's to rockin' chicks with attitude!

Deryn: Thanks so much! I loooove Susie; she was my hero in college.

Stacie: Thanks! The fabric bead is an experiment since I was curious...I think I may have to do it again because I like it immensely.

Tammy: Thank you so much! I am SO GLAD I got out of it too, it was starting to make me all manner of worried.

Swati: Awww, now you're making me blush! I'm glad you grin though, it means I can make someone smile which is a good thing!
