No, it’s not a spring snowstorm drink. Although we did lose power for a few hours this afternoon, convincing me that taking a nap was exactly the way to beat the storm.
With several necklaces in progress, and only one finished, I took some photos of what’s on my bench. My process is to string beads, on and off pieces of wire, until I like the combination. No matter how many times I organize the beads in front of me, I always end up with messy piles to feed my creativity. Out of sight, out of mind, you know. I like to have everything out where I can see it. I might sketch a few basic ideas, but my best results come from trial and error. I worked all winter to create and gather lots of components, so I could make a big mess finding ways to put them together.
I really liked making the pod bead, below. I might pair it with the reddish glass beads from SueBeads.
