First I have a new set of four medallion pendants. After gluing on the backing and setting them aside to dry, I got to work on a quick quartet of herringbone rings to pass the time. The pendants all have bead centers and some interesting color combinations. My favorite so far is the lime green with stripes, which looks so much like a caterpillar even my bead helper remarked on it. I’ll leave the final judgment until they’re all snipped and trimmed.
With my first ever craft show coming up at the end of this year, I’m hoping to build up a good supply of beaded rings to bring with me. Rather than spend weeks working at nothing but rings - which would interfere with the Egyptian gods challenge, barely on schedule as it is - I’m planning to make them in small batches along the way. I started by choosing some favorite colors and mixing and matching until I got combinations that I liked. Perhaps some new pattern ideas will immerge!
Last week’s ombre lariat is ready to go, and turned out fabulous. I can’t believe that I was so determined to have a continuous rope design - this is so much better.
What are you working on this week?
