It’s One of Those Days When…

I’m taking two steps forward and one step back.  I’m designing a new beading project and have been spending more time than I’d prefer tearing out beads that aren’t working in the design and replacing them with beads of other colors and/or type/sizes.  When a design is conceived and initially put to paper with colored pencils, it’s not the same as seeing the actual beadwork.  What works on paper does not necessarily translate to a 3-D piece.  I am making progress however and very much liking this beaded piece thus far.  I hope to have a completed design by the end of July or early August and of course tutorials and kits will be available for this design in my Etsy shop.  My idea is to create a pendant that will incorporate a spectacular geometric beaded bead using Delica and seed beads.  It will be accented with shrink plastic flower shapes and another very interesting component…you’ll just have to wait to find out!  Above is the bead I’m working on now.  I’ll be weaving another in a different colourway as well.  Stay tuned!
