So I wanted to make a necklace...
I need a wrangler. I am awful when it comes to keeping myself on task when I have a table full of beads.
I needed to re-stock my finished jewelry at work so first I made some beads.
Now my favorite part I went to the local bead store and sought out some Czech glass beads to go with my beads. I wanted to add some color and pop. Then I got out my own stash and found some more beads!
Then I got out everything...and of course got distracted with another idea. Too many things to choose from. So first I made this.
Which of course looks nothing like the original plan but I was super happy with it.
Finally I did a simple necklace in the end.
I am hoping that I am not the only one who jumps around. Sometimes I have a plan and execute it accordingly. But many times I am winging it.
How about you? Do you plan it all out. Sketch and then string it.
I have been known to string something up and take the whole thing apart only to start over.
I would love to hear how you create.
Off to teach in Madison WI. this weekend so next week I hope to have pictures of the class.
