Success and Failure

First of all, Happy Independence Day all!!
Now, for the bad news. I was outside minding my own business, playing frisbee with the family (carrying one too many s'more in my belly) when I felt my necklace hanging a little lower than it ought to around my neck. Lo and behold, it was broken and dangling sadly down my shirt. While my first thought was how useless Nymo and Spiral Herringbone were, I kept looking a little closer, and I think that the problem comes from the fact that I used Hex beads for this particular necklace, and the edges were just too sharp. Oh well, you win some, you lose some and I can't only post successes. I'm sad that my necklace is broken, but I'm gonna buckle down and find a way to fix it. (That is after I get some of my other projects done. Priorities, people!) Hope you had a good 4th!

P.S. It's in black and white because I'm sad. :(


  1. Se lo triste que se siente. Deberias intentar hacer tus trabajos con fireline. Es mucho mas fuerte y seguro, especialmente con esos beads que tienen esquinas afiladas. Yo siempre trabajo con fireline. Son pocas las cosas que he hecho con nymo. BTW estoy de vacaciones con mi familia. Llego este domingo. El lunes sin falta te envio tu regalito. Te incluyo tambien una sorpresa!!

  2. Ah, lessons learned. But still, it is heart breaking when you've put so much time in. Such a beautiful piece.
