The powers that be still haven't added any extra hours in the day for me...dagnabbit! So, I just seem to get busier and busier.
I finally sat down yesterday to do some beadwork and translated the Rio Grande beads into a beadwoven cuff....good ol' two drop peyote in Delicas for a superb drape.
This is new to me.....translating the beads I make into bead weaving but I must say....I like it! It takes me out of my safe little box into some more challenging pieces.
I was busy at the end of last week putting a necklace together for myself, a rarity thesedays, but I was going to an event and wanted something to wear with the new outfit I'd made. I had gotten a few sets of these copper 5 to 1 reducers a while ago and they were ideal for the look I was going for. The jasper stone isn't of great quality but I fell in love with it and it too has been sitting in my bead box waiting it's turn.
