I have at least three things that I need to blog about ASAP, but you can tell from the title that time remains an issue. First, there there is the new camera a Canon Power Shot SX 130 IS. That blog post will have to come later. Second, is Isle a Beads, a great eclectic bead shop in Cleveland. Again, that blog post will have to come later. Third, is actual beadwork. I have a friend who is going on a cruise in October. She requested a "purple necklace."
Two weeks ago I bought a purple swarovski rivoli for the purple necklace. I bezeled and embellished the rivoli. I knew if my friend didn't like it that I would use it in another piece. I presented the focal to her and it did not suit her- she had a simple single strand necklace in mind. Here is the focal:
This is based on a pattern by Eva Kovács, which can be found here:
My apartment is still a shambles, I have opened every box but not everything has been put away. It took me 20 minutes to find my box of purple beads so I can work on a pretty necklace for my friend.
More posts to come.
