So after writing my blog post the other day, I was set to work on the world traveler necklace from Fusion Beads. It me a couple of nights to work and finally got to end of the project and ran into a problem, the beading wire was too short. I thought that if I remove the last row, it would be fine, but much to my chargin that did not work. I will have to start over with the exception of adding a couple more inches to leave room to finish off with toggle, but was not incline to restart last night. However, I was determined to get something done, so I created another necklace with the extra materials from the World Traveler project.
I was able to use the beading wire from the failed necklace attempt to make this 26 in necklace. It did take me a little while to string it due to the seed beads, and figuring out the placement of them. Actually I had the concept for this necklace in my head for a couple since knowing that I would have dalmatians beads left from the world traveler project. I received an order from Fire Mountain Gems that includes round wood beads. I an idea in my head a bracelet and necklace with the wood beads.
This weekend, I am to write a to do list of knitting, crochet, and jewelry projects. Now I am going to get some rest because I think my body is getting ready for fall. Ciao for now!
