There is a whole lot of beading going on in my studio
as I'm working on an elaborate project for a show.
Since I want you to think I'm very neat and tidy,
there will be no studio photos today.
Instead, I'll tell you about what you'd see ~
a large Chinese Writing Stone Cabochon
from Gary B. Wilson Lapidary Design - it's a looker,
Swarovski crystals - the ultimate in bling,
Pyrite stone beads with an AB finish - subtle shimmer and texture,
seed beads - bags upon bags of them in a rainbow of colors,
drawings, tracing paper mock-ups, Ultra Suede,
and the usual beading tools -
long beading needles, Nymo thread (size D), plus scissors.
If you're wondering what this amazing peacock street art mural
has in common with my project....
well, they're both colorful,
both large (my necklace only in relative terms, of course),
both stop you in your tracks!
(hoping this necklace will when it's done - we'll see).
Wishing you a colorful, creative week!
