First there was a little bezel experiment, done with ordinary glass globs or nuggets. I have about a hundred of them, and although I haven’t officially included them in the list of destash beads, I do want to use up a few more of them before the year is out. Only a handful will be round enough for a really nice design, but I do love the look of the glass, and the nostalgia that comes from working with such curious components.
That month I also completed one of my all time favorite projects. The Nature Nut Lariat still stands out in my memory, because I was so looking forward to creating it. I had just finished several weeks of custom work, and it was the first thing that I made just for the fun of it. It was also a treat to work with the unique nut beads, and have the piece turn out even better than planned. I’m happy to say that this necklace recently found its owner, and it was such a pleasure to send it out into the world.
Do you ever look back on old designs and critique your work, or long for used up beads?
