We were all sent the same collections of beads from the Baubles and Beads online store and were tasked with making something with them. The goodies are shown below:
I love challenges when they make me go "uh oh" and this one certainly did. I'm lousy with brass. I love the Chinese cording, but don't know what to do with it. I'm most comfortable with the pearls, beads, and wire, but I have to push myself, right? This weekend I hope to get cracking. I had an idea while lying in bed the other night, but when I took this photo, I realized, one wrong cut and you and screwed the whole thing up.
The other Baubles and Beads design team members:
Just looking at that list of designers who excel in their work, many who make their own components or just are one with anything they pick up, has me nervous, like the girl who somehow ended up at the cool kids' table and is faaaaaking it, hoping she can keep up.
Yup, that's me. I feel like I've been faking it a LOT this year and well, that's OK. All I can do is my best, and I'm proud to be in the company of these women and proud to be trusted with the components from Baubles and Beads.
You can see what we all made on September 18th!
