Day 1. Make earrings. And I did...two quick and easy pairs. The triangle tops are made with Miyuki Delica blend #986, which is one of my all time favorites because it's made of varying shades of purples, greens, and golds. I see a matching bracelet and necklace in the kind of near future for these. I made my version of Fusion Beads "Poseidon" earrings, which calls for 8 mm Swarovski crystal bicones, in fuchsia and gold because that's pretty much all I had on hand at the time.
Day 2. Use Up Some Bead Leftovers: This was a toughie. I don't actually have bead leftovers. Now, don't hate me because I'm organized, but I do really and truly but everything away after I'm finished with a project. No leftover bead soup for me. So I cheated and dived into my drawer of cane class beads and made myself this lovely bracelet.
Day 3. Learn a New Beading Technique: Like I said, I do have some due dates to consider so this is going to have to wait until next month when I have more time. I'd love to play with that new crystal clay I've been hearing so much about.
Day 4. Organize Your Bead Area: So I did. And here are the before and after pictures to prove it. Of course there's no guarantee that it will stay cleaned up for more than a day or two.
Day 5. Incorporate Chain Into a Jewelry Design: Maybe next month.
