In order to create lots of rings for a craft fair this fall, I came up with a plan that wouldn’t interfere with my other projects: Every time I use druks in a design, I set aside one, and make a ring at the end - usually with the same beads I used in the preceding project. It’s been working well so far, at least until my latest project.
The necklace I’ve been working on had two colors of druks, so I set aside one of each. Then, somewhere I got this inexplicable idea to make rings with rainbow striped bands. I liked it so much, that instead of making one or two rings with the colors I had set aside, I went through my stash to make the perfect rainbow palette. And I changed my mind about one of the druk colors after pulling all of the beads, so now I have all these rings on my to-do list!
I haven’t yet decided if I’ll finish all four rings before moving on to my next Egyptian gods piece, but I did get started on one after finishing the rainbow pieces, since I had so many seed bead colors right there to choose from.
What are you working on this week?
