Work in Progress: Interim Rings

My bead tray is looking a little crowded this week, as I juggle several different projects. I’m still working on making new herringbone rings between designs, and I’ve also added St. Petersburg bracelets to my list of items to stock up on. Even with three quick pieces to make after each major project, I’m still looking forward to wrapping up the Egyptian Gods series at the end of the year. Next up is Ra, and I’m planning some new netting experiments that will work great for the sun god.

I’m also working on samples for some custom work, and I’ve got lots of colors shuffling around as we search for the perfect palette and pattern. I really need to get around to putting away beads from my last few projects so that things feel a little less frenzied in my workspace. Sometimes it's nice just to have lots of beads to gaze at, though!

Last week’s lariat is finished, and turned out great!

  1. Hi! I just finished a matching necklace, bracelet and earrings in chartruese green tones with crystals and now I'm working on a bead embroidery with a native american flavor. Great fun and love your blog site! Warmly, Valda

  2. Mortira, I just love that lariat - so cool!

  3. I love the lariat. The blue is beautiful. Adding the yellow really made it look great.
