This was a fun project to work on and I did do quite a bit of ripping out but I am so satisfied with the finished necklace. I read a comment yesterday on FB from a fellow beader Carol Dean Sharp of Sand Fibers and she said – “Doing research for one of my next designs. This is fun”. This got me thinking about how my own beading is progressing and how much more thoughtful I am with my projects. I think a lot of this has to do with the fact that I have a large body of work created – my Etsy and 1000Market Shops are full and I have lots of things made for the upcoming spring craft shows. This body of work now allows me to experiment and try new techniques and just have fun beading. It also allows me to make some things for myself. I think researching ideas and becoming more thoughtful with your project is a sign of maturing and growing as an artist and I am glad I am getting to this point. I am so happy I discovered beading!
