So I just finished my first 6 day work week. I am completely pooped! Friday was great though because I don’t start until 2pm, so my friend and fellow beadaholic Megan came over for tea, gossip and beading. Whilst I awaited her arrival, I decided to use up some of my stash in a simple beaded necklace, 1 strand, nothing fancy. It had been a long time since I had done something so simple, and forgot how satisfying it can be. So while Meghan and I chatted away, I made another one. Then I got ambitious and made a 3 stranded one. It was nice to work with something other than metal rings for a day. I am really quite pleased with the results too, 3 very different looks, using cloisonne beads, Swarovski crystals, Chinese crystals, freshwater pearls and left over seed beads.
…and, I just finished another one 😉 We had cloisonne on sale at the shop, couldn’t resist!
Of course, now I am going to sit down to another 9mm black nickel full Persian project…necklace this time…with beads..purple ones.
Tomorrow, Meghan and I are checking out Dragon’s Lair minerals tomorrow. I have to stop buying until I use up what I have though. The trouble is, I find something in my stash that I think will be great, but then, oh, it needs such and such to finish it or to go with it…sigh…
I am certain that I will be posting tomorrow with pictures of my guilt when I get back from my little “reconnaissance” trip tomorrow.
