I have these large beads, and I’ve had an idea for using them in what is a relatively simple necklace for a long time. But I have not been able to find the right pendant. The beads are pretty large, and all the pendants I have tried have been too small. I think I might have finally found the right pendant, and I took it to my workroom to get started.
I could not find those beads anywhere. I looked and looked and no dice. What the heck? Where could they have gone? They are big! It’s amazing how I manage to lose the things I want to use when I want to use them. Those beads were hanging around in my face for the longest time. I’m sure I put them somewhere “safe” which is always a mistake.
However, all was not lost. I am having a lot of fun with my drops for Free Art Friday, so I took the opportunity to make some earrings for this week.
I like that Free Art Friday always gives me something fun to do. Also, I tried a messy wrap on the lower dangle of the earrings, and it turned out pretty well. That’s something I’ve been wanting to master. I’ll have to continue to practice, but I feel good that it is decent enough that I didn’t take them apart. These will be finding a new home on Friday.
