Work in Progress: Black and Yellow

So many good things are happening in my workspace right now, I don’t even know where to begin. I’ve just poured out three lovely Japanese seed bead colors in jet black and deep, deep shades of yellow for a new cuff bracelet. This one is going to have a pattern that I’ve been meaning to use for years. It’s another piece for my big project, which is getting closer to completion every week. I’m really looking forward to the big reveal.

I haven’t pulled the colors yet, but I’m also planning a new daisy chain collar with black and yellow. I’ve been seeing the combination a lot lately, especially on Polyvore, and I couldn’t resist using it in a quick project. I suppose it might be the fact that summer is about to end, but I’m craving some bright colors and contrasts.

Black and Yellow Beadwork in Progress

I’ll be starting the new collar as soon as our dove embroidery pendant is done. I love the colors that my little designer has picked for this one (I’m secretly hoping for one more round of lemon lime). I was working on a freeform piece with baroque pearls on the side, but the beadwork came out too tight and all wonky, so I’m turning it into a necklace for myself, whenever I get around to finishing it.

I’ve also got some new materials on the way that I can’t wait to try out. I’m planning a new stringing experiment and I think (hope!) that this one will turn out much better than the ones before it. I’m still trying to work out what I’m going to do with all the sari silk I bought.

What are you working on this week?
