Web of Confusion

My January Bead Journal Project isn't quite finished yet;  I need to add more strands to the web and decide on a way to display this, but I decided to reveal it anyway.

At the beginning of this year I was feeling caught up in a web of despair, confusion, and self-doubt brought on by an argument I had had with someone a few months earlier.

I began this piece with the idea of using seed beads and crystals in shades of gray and black to match the world I was living in at the time; but, eventually pink hope and red passion made their way back into my life and into my bead work. 

This post is only a few short paragraphs long, but it has been difficult for me to write. 

Even if it was only for a little while I let someone filled with his or her own despair and self-doubt have power over me, and I wish I hadn't let that happen.

I like to say that "sometimes it's a bitch to be human and sometimes it's human to be a bitch."  I'd like to add to that by saying "Don't ever let a bitch treat you like you aren't human."

  1. I'm obviously behind the times. I came to your site from the BJP on FB. I think it's exciting that you did your January piece in August. Gives me hope. I did my January piece in February. My February piece hasn't been done yet.

    Web of Confusion is great! Part dream catcher, part in your face challenge - all wonderful. I completely agree to not let "a bitch treat you like you aren't human". Value and trust yourself. Question people's motives. When people tell you who they are, believe it.

    Are you going to try to catch-up and do more this year, or maybe start fresh in January? I haven't decided yet which approach I will take.

    Keep up the beautiful and meaningful beading!
