Work in Progress: Plenty of Purple

It’s been a crazy week here with appointments, meetings, and a few pre-summer nature expeditions. I’m a little behind on getting posts started for June, but I have managed to get in some beading time - and there are some exciting things happening on the bead tray right now.

I can’t exactly show you the pieces that I’m working on this week, because they’re top secret, but I can share the colors. Most of the palettes are inspired by grapes and wine, which means some fun combinations of purples, greens, and maybe a little gold. There may even be an appearance by dusty blue freshwater pearls somewhere along the way.

Wine and Grapes Beadwork in Progress

Last week’s rings all came out great. I experimented with tweaking my old design a bit and had great success. I also finally added cords to my most recent embroidery pendants, and they’re almost ready to join the others in the shop. Only 2 out of 4 necklaces got their photographs this week, as the battery in my new camera finally needed a recharge, but it’s a start. The bad news is, we haven't worked on a new embroidery pendant in some time, but that will hopefully be remedies this weekend.
