Woo hoo...I just got tickets to see my favorite band of all time!!!! I am going to see Fleetwood Mac, but I have to wait until May for the concert. This will be my third time seeing the band, I first saw them in 1977 on the Rumours tour. The image burned in my mind is of Stevie Nicks singing Rhiannon, with her black gypsy dress blowing in the wind! Fabulous!! I then saw them in the early 1990's, but Lyndsey Buckingham was not performing with the band at that time. This time Christine McVie will be missing from the band, but from the reviews I have read, the concert is supposed to be awesome!

Now if you are familier with my jewelry, you know that I name all my bracelets and necklaces after songs, so I am looking for a suitable song name for this piece. Actually it is two seperate necklaces,
which can be worn on their own or........
...together for a real statement!
Both necklaces are made entirely from sterling silver, rutilated quartz, Swarovski glass pearls and crystals, and one huge fabulous rare vintage Swarovski faceted crystal, that is the focal bead inside the silver crescent shaped frame.
So here are the rules:
1. Enter as often as you like with your suggestions by leaving me a comment.
2.Your suggestion must be a song title.
3. Contest closes Jan.31 at midnight MST.
So what do you get for your efforts??? I will select my favourite song title from all of the entries, and the winner will receive these wonderful Hot Rocks earrings! These are made from some lovely vintage (never before used) sapphire Swarovski crystals, sterling silver beads and small Swarovski crystals, all on sterling silver lever back ear wires.

See the dog and butterfly
Up in the air he like to fly
Dog and butterfly below she had to try
She roll back down to the warm soft ground
Laughing to the sky, up to the sky
Dog and butterfly
We're getting older the world's getting colder
For the life of me I don't know the reason why
Maybe it's livin' making us give in
Hearts rolling in taken back on the tide
We're balanced together ocean upon the sky
