I decided that, since I can't do any more work on the wicker until Thursday, I should go back to doing more cleaning this morning.
Sometimes it brings to light pieces that were "starters" of tangents....You know how I love going off on tangents.
These three rings are all that are left of one of those tangents. A few years ago, I made a lot of them and sold them. they are easy and fun to do. I will have to do a tutorial in the future.
Tessie loves it when I get into these drawers. You know how she loves glitter and glitz. Most of this drawer is either pieces of old bead work that I salvaged or partial jewelry from thrift shop bags.
Actually, I started this cleaning spree because I can't find the latest mason jar of jewelry bits that I bought a month or two ago.
I am also missing all of my stretch beading cord and the basket it was in...Does anybody know where I tucked it away? If so, please let me know. I really need the stretch cord.
No, I am not going to run to the store and buy more. I already have been there and done that....There are three rolls around here somewhere...
Anyway, Tessie found that and keeps slapping my hands every time I try to get it away from her...
I keep looking at this pile and thinking of all of the hours that went into these pieces. I look at them as worthwhile, because with each piece I learned something new. Some were successful and are worn out. Others are "What was I thinking?" pieces and I wouldn't wear them to a dog fight, as my dad used to say...
Anyway, the beads in them are still good and who knows when I might be just one pink bead short on a project?
I only have two drawers to go.
Don't forget to comment on Saturday's post if you haven't already.
See you tomorrow.
