A Little Nostalgia...& Big TV Sets.

I confess, I still have one of those large TV's.  I remember sweating over which brand and what size to buy. Yes - that's the TV with the image of Dayna Devon from EXTRA TV. 
One of my very first beaded designs was a little net choker.  Dunitz sold 100s - maybe 1000s of these.  We created so many fun color combinations.  One mail order catalog we worked with had us create Halloween, Christmas and July 4th versions. I'm certain we created them for other holidays too. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end. After other companies copied our net choker, we retired it from our arsenal.  I'm sure you can still find this design from other wholesalers.
The most fun was seeing our net chokers turn up on TV! Yes - it was fun catching Dayna Devon on EXTRA wearing our choker. We also captured Tangi Miller wearing our net cutie over and over on her hit show, Felicity. I was lucky enough to snap her a couple of times - yes watching the BIG TV. I know it's Friday. Can I call today #ThrowBackFriday? OK - #ThrowBackThursday one day late. - ND
