I have no idea what that means, but it was a nice, rhythmic way of stringing together today's necklace story.  Even if I did leave out the pun about toting my own horn per the Tote Trove piece.  (That bit of wordplay, by the way, was the fiance's brainchild, not mine.  You've got to give credit where credit's due.)

And now for the serious business of technique.  The chocolates in the Sweets for the Sweet Necklace are actually - wait for it - lip gloss containers I received several Valentine's Days ago.  I cleaned out the leftover gloss, mounted the (surprisingly light) cases onto my signature felt, and then mounted all of that onto some felt-backed cardboard for extra durability.  Talk about sealed with a kiss!

And next time (or the time after that) we'll be talking about cupcakes.  Because I've been clinging onto lip gloss receptacles that look like those too.
