Testing with a Final Temple Bead…

This will be my fifth Temple bead! I’m giving it a final go because it’s so important to make sure that each and every step of the tutorial is correct!  Designing takes a lot of time. The first Temple bead was purely experimental in both color and design. I wanted to create a project based on a theme of peace and tranquility and I loved the results! The second Temple bead gave me a chance to work with different color combinations as I jotted directions along the way. The third Temple bead was worked from the notes I had taken and typed as a draft. The fourth Temple bead was worked as I photographed each step of its creation. Now I’m proofing and “fine tuning” the tutorial with this fifth bead. I find that the best way to catch mistakes or grammatical errors is to make a final bead. This time I chose a colourway of olive/forest/bronze accented with silver beads. The impetus for these color choices coincided with a shipment of round gem-stones beads that I received this week…it included a strand of beautiful 6mm jade beads and this final Temple bead will be an integral part of a Mala (prayer beads) strand to wear as a necklace. I’m eager to make it, but it will have to wait until I have the “Tantra Meditation Amulet” tutorial and kits listed in my shop and I’m counting on that happening very soon. Stay tuned!
