This afternoon I started working out projects for one of the classes. It's a beginner's spiral class and I want to give the students choices of embellished pieces or pieces with a main focal. I always follow my nose when I bead, so weighing, counting and measuring was an interesting proposition. I did one small bracelet - and plan to do several different styles, necklaces and earrings for display. AND today, I finished the very last of all the paperwork: teaching outlines, class handouts, photos of work, CV and covering letter.
The project shown is a modest start but I like the colors. The larger bead is silver lined dark topaz and the 11s are copper lined ruby. The two bead-wide loop is the Bead Babe's - and I'm grateful for it. I hate sloppy finishing.
No doubt, now that I have basic grams per inch figured, I'll go loony and start adding details like crazy.
All this during a flu day.
Beads and bathrooms 'r' us.
