Bead Table Wednesday (BTW) post this week, you'll see a necklace I'm working on for me, myself and I. Why is it we always design for other people first and sadly forget to make ourselves a priority (or maybe it's just me, but play along and make me feel better, okay?) Thanks.
So I'm working on a purple and green bead embroidered necklace. I'm loving how it's coming along. I had a few hours of puppy nap time this week and a beautiful day on my screen porch so I opted to make a bracelet to match. Disclaimer: this is not my design, it was in Bead and Button's April 2010 issue. It worked up in just a few hours and brought in both the purple and greens that I've worked into the body of the necklace.
I kept a tight tension to create a wavy, ruffly edge. But with looser tension, this bracelet would lie flat. I however am a curly girl, so a little bit of wavy is just my thing.
How about you... when was the last time you took the time to make something special just for YOU? If you can't remember... go make something now! You're special and you deserve to know that I really value our friendship (even if we've never gotten to meet in person)!
