Good Ideas and Not So Good
I've been working on a bracelet design all week and I think I've labored mightily and brought forth a mouse...LOL! Somehow it looked much better in my head, ya know? So, I think I'll keep the hours and hours of RAW and figure out something that works better for the spaces that are now threaded with a peyote strip...
On the good idea front....this is a great pattern from Phyllis Dintenfass (there's a kit on her website here) that I just had to have. I've been beading for so long, especially off-loom stitches that it's rare for me to see anything I haven't seen before or made myself. But I saw this in the article on Phyllis in this month's Step by Step Beads and just could not figure out how to make her exquisite little sea whirl pins. Well, now I know...and they're great fun to make! I'm on my second one already and will be adding it to my november bjp, I think.
