Still Here

So many things going on in the "real world" that I haven't had a chance to post or even fully read my emails. It's rough, but hopefully life will settle down a little bit soon and I can get some computer time in....not to mention beading time!

Grandma Got the Bracelet

Well, I finished the cuff bracelet (as seen in the previous post "A Work In Progress") and ended up giving it to Grandma for Mother's Day. She absolutely loves it and it's a rosy-pink, which is her favorite color. For being my first attempt at an embellished netted cuff, it wasn't bad, but I wasn't completely happy with the end result. I'm going to try the technique again and see if I can't get a better tension on it.

Currently I'm working on a twisted herringbone necklace, but I've been sick this week and working on it and being on the computer just hasn't been great for my head! I'll hopefully have some "in progress" photos later this weekend.

A Work in Progress

After almost two solid months without being either A) able to or B) inspired enough to bead, I've finally started a new piece. This is something new for me. It's a net cuff with Swarovski pearl and Swarovski crystal embellishments. Let me know what you think...
