No new pics today, but I did work on the bracelet. And ended up ripping out a portion. The dang thing keeps wanting to get too wide in places and I am trying to control that so that part of the bracelet doesn't end up as an arm band that goes up to the elbow. :(
Like I said, there's a lot of trial and error in the process of making the piece end up as a wearable art object. I wasn't home most of the day today, but worked on the bracelet this evening after dinner and when I finally decided to put it away because I was beginning to see double, it was close to 12:30 -- which is now.
All my beads were in a big jumble on my work space and there I was hunting for one little bead that I needed for one little spot. I decided to clean up and separate all the beads into their own little piles -- of course tomorrow, they'll get all jumbled up again, but I needed to see what I was really working with. I think I counted 19 different beads: Delica 11/s; Delica 8's; Delica 10's; 2 different triangles, cubes, seeds-size 11; seeds-size 8 - and a few oddities - potato fresh water pearls, a glass bead or two -- or three.
But it is fun seeing how it shapes itself.
