Lately I’ve become occupied with a new obsession. I don’t have anything to show for it yet, but maybe you can guess what it is.
Yes, those are teeny tiny seed beads! You see, my friend Jamie at The Bead Gallery invited me to take part in one of her Needle & Thread classes. I was a little hesitant about delving into another hobby, but then I rationalized that seed beads are really just another facet of of my jewelry making.
In the meantime, I have this waiting to be plied.
I really fell behind on this past month’s spin-along. I ordered both the Christopher (above) and the Midnight Desire (not picture). I have Midnight Desire spun, but it’s still on the bobbin waiting to be wound into skeins. And, as you can see, Christopher languishes.
I did finish something though!
That’s a bracelet made with brass and sterling silver. I’d like to say I came up with this all on my own, but I got the design from Easy Wire 2007.
It’s the first time I’ve ever worked with brass and it may be the last. Brass is much harder then sterling so I had quite the time getting those coils to work. This is the project that killed my hands for about a day. Bad wire!
Finally, I tried to get a good snap for Friday’s Kitty Pr0n, but this is the best I could do.
Silly Quincy would not sit still!
Happy May Day, people. Have a great weekend!
