Bead Table Wednesday 8/6 Untidy/Tidy
June 8, 2011 § 2 Comments
I always put my jewellery making things back where they came from. Always. Because otherwise I can’t use my desk for studying. I tidy up so it’s all nice and neat, and I can get on with other things. Apparently.
Argh! You can see, all bundled up in the mess with everything else, the lovely lucite beads from Yummy Treasures and Reduction Nation, new seed beads from my trip to the Nottingham Bead Shop, semi-precious nuggets used as cabochons, works in progress for June’s Marcie and Me palette, and loads of other non-bead related stuff. If anything, this photo has made me realise keeping empty silicone cupcake liners in a place where everyone can see you had not one, but two, is just not on. And yes, I should tidy up.
I have now tidied up.
Here’s something readers might not know about me: I only have one ear pierced. It’s pierced twice, but only the one – so I never wear pairs of earrings, and only recently have started to make them in pairs. Here are some of the seed bead earrings that I’m currently working on:
I’m taking a lot of time over these, checking and double checking and redoing them in they’re not exactly right. I redid and finished the first pair (the black triangular ones) as the Czech firepolish beads in one beaded component were slightly less iridescent that in the other. I think I’m going mad! What’s been on your bead table this week? Precision and perfectionism, or are you embracing the mess?
