Work in Progress: Leftover Ring

This week it looks like there’s a lot going on at my bead tray, but it isn’t really all that exciting, at least not at this moment. I was about 20 minutes away from finishing up another disc in my latest audio book when I trimmed the final thread on a new collar. I had my tray of druks nearby - which has a few stray beaded beads in it - and decided to use the time to start on a new ring, using some of the seed beads I already had on the tray.

I didn’t get very far, as you can see. Once I’ve whipped together an all-blue ring, it’s on to a new cuff and something moon-inspired for the Egyptian god Khonsu.

Last week’s lariat project is finished. I’ll be sharing all the gritty details on how this piece turned out tomorrow. It was one of those comme ci comme ca endings that happens when an idea fails and you pick up the pieces and keep going.
