Are really great days to find an old Doris Day* movie, pull out the beads, and be creative.
Since February I have been working on Prom Project pieces and had to put aside two other works in progress.
Here is my current work space:
I bought the inset brass sliders about a year ago with no plan- I just thought they were lovely. My local bead store has had strands of these really great antique cut brass beads- I bought those a few months ago with no plan. The round stones are I don’t know how many years old. Serendipity happens when you have a large bead stash and buy things because they are pretty in and of themselves. A large bead stash doesn’t have all the treasure you need; I had to make a bead store run when I discovered I didn’t have a clasp.
* I really like old Doris Day movies. When I bead I want something that doesn’t require my eyes, or much attention to follow the dialogue and old Doris Day movies fit the bill.
