So, I have a design in my cabeza, but it requires wrapped loops, so here's my practice loops. I'm finally at the point where I can create a wire-wrapped loop that doesn't draw blood. (YES!) I spent pretty much the first couple of days at this exercise murdering my fingers. They're okay now, and my wrappin' skills are slowly improving.
Anyway, on another note, I'd like to congratulate all the bead artists who made it into Beads 2010. I bought my copy yesterday and was so excited to see some of my bead buddies in there. So, bead buddies, if you're one of those that happen to pass by my humble abode, um...blog. Congratulations, you deserve it!
Oh, and also, thanks to all the people who commented on my earlier post about the landscape pendants... Ya' know how sometimes you think you've done something that is earth shattering and will change the face of jewelry making forever?? Well, and I'm being honest here, let's just say that my expectations for my pendants were a lot higher than the actual reception. That said, your comments really made me smile and realize that while my pendants won't shift paradigms, they are exactly what I wanted them to be.
Have a great day!
