Still working on the bags. Almost done with phase 2 (making all the individual patches). After today I think I'll move on to the initial stages of assembly! It's pretty exciting though I must admit I'm kind of itching to move on to a different project. But I'll keep with it til they're done and then take a break. In any case, here's some stuff I made before I started to tackle this beast of a project.
More baubles all for me. Simplicity can be beauty.
This one is special as all the beads were in my stash for a long time. I loved them so much but never knew quite how to use them to really show off their beauty...until now.
This is another one that has special meaning to me. The focal pendant is recycled from some beautifully hideous earrings that my mom had forever. On my last visit home she gave them to me but there was no way I was actually going to wear them as earrings (not to mention as earrings they are ridiculously heavy). So I snipped the post off the back off one of the earrings and glued on a lovely brass filigree piece and then put this together. I do love the asymmetry of it.
Beads are fun....when you're not dropping and losing them...or spilling them. Haha.
