Work in Progress: Relaxing Rings

It is so good to be back! I was hit with a really wretched cold awhile back, and was couch bound for days. Even when I’m feeling up to it, I never do beadwork while sick, so I’ve fallen way behind on designs, posts, and everything else. Now that I'm back to normal, I've got my to-do list before me and I’m working on catching up.

Going back to work really knocked the wind out of me for a second week, so I’m taking it easy right now with some super easy beaded rings for my top secret project. The big reveal is just around the corner, and I can’t wait to share the news! Meanwhile, I’m up to my ears in projects.

Beaded Rings in Progress

On the last bead tray, which seems like years ago already, I was working on some new embroidery pendants. Although I haven’t yet had the time to finish stringing the new medallions, I did finish my second fish leather experiment, and it turned out great! I wanted to do something a little more special than just a simple sliding knot for this piece, which includes one of Kristal and Cynthia’s designer seed bead mixes from, so I went with a spiral rope necklace instead. Check out the Bead & Button blog for my full 'review' and thoughts on fabulous fish leather.

  1. Looks like fun.I'm not beading this week either. I've been in bed for three days and had diarrhea so bad that I've lost 10 lbs! Love the weight loss, but not this way!!! And when I don't even feel like beading, you know I am really sick!! Glad your feeling better, wish I was. :(
