Just so no one thinks I have abandoned beading here is what I am working on. It will eventually be a Caldera bangle from CGB. I started this a few days ago and I know it is going to take a long time. I am dying to move on to some other projects in the book but I started with the ring and this is the next progression - I want to be sure I know what I am doing and how to do things, so I am following the book step by step. I also have never worked with delicas - so I need to buy a lot of them - I want to wait until I am more comfortable before I place a big order. I hope I am going to love this - I am not thrilled with the color but this is the color of beads I have right now and it will have to do for my first try. I am off to work on it right now!
