The "Tangled up in Blue" Experiment, parts 29 & 30
Welcome back! I'm creating a piece of jewelry for each line from Bob Dylan's song, "Tangled up in Blue." Line 29 goes like this:
"She lit a burner on the stove, and offered me a pipe."
As long as the stove was lit, I thought we'd toast marshmallows and make smores. The charm on this bracelet has a campfire with a pair of marshmallows over it. The bracelet has marshmallowy pearls, graham crackery and chocolately painted jasper beads, and blue and brown glass nailhead beads. Mmmmm. . . smores.
"'I thought you'd never say hello,' she said, 'You look like the silent type.'"
Oh, this one was tricky. The bracelet has a little dog tag charm that says "Joy," for her joy when he said hello. It also has butterflies, Celtic knots, and brilliant and bright blue, green and yellow glass beads. When in doubt, throw the book at it and see what sticks!
