If you're not knitting, the terrorists win

More Beads

As I was looking through the bead containers to see what struck my interest, I found this necklace.

This was one of the first attempts at beading I'd done. It actually was one of the very first things I'd done where I'd had to use jump rings and crimp beads and all. I was working from a pattern in a kit and broke the long eye pin that goes through this big round bead in front. So I emprovised with a shorter pin and didn't make the pattern.

Ha! When you're starting out, it never occurs to you "I can go buy another eye pin."

But, this looks really good. I like it this way. The trouble is, my workmanship was not great in those early days and this thing broke the first time I wore it. So I put it all in a Ziploc bag and put it in my bead stash to fix later.

This time around, I'm much better at doing this. I kept the emprovised design I had used before (I don't even remember what it was supposed to look like.) and just gave it better connections.
