Work in Progress: Modified Collar

My bead tray is looking a little tidier this week and it feels like I’m finally getting back down to just one project – not counting the ongoing ugly necklace and my herringbone rope which I might just finish this weekend. Right now I’m working on the prototype for an upcoming collar tutorial. I'm keeping the palette simple which really makes a difference in how messy my creative space feels. I haven’t made much progress on the collar since I got hit with an annoying cold bug, and I have very strict rules about beading while under the weather. Even if I could manage to sit upright long enough to get any work done, I just don’t think it’s worth it.

Turquoise and Coral Collar in Progress

Although my bead tray is in pretty good shape, my workspace is currently a bit of a disaster – I haven’t yet complied with my resolution to keep a weekly clean-up schedule. Once I’m feeling better I plan to do a complete overhaul of my space and then maintain it ongoing. I got some new organization tools for Christmas that I haven’t implemented yet, and I can’t wait to see how well they work into my routines.

What are you making right now?
