I have been thinking about the challenge and what I want to make. Yesterday I started getting some beads together to see what I like. I have my bead box all set with my needles and scissors and other tools.
I love this ceramic pendant. I think it needs to be the focal point so I am looking at working with subtle colors. I like the blue and brownish seed beads I chose, but not the white ones or the pearls. One of my favorite straps is herringbone, but as I was falling asleep last night I had a flash of an idea about a bail, which may determine what I do next.
Today is a good day to spend a few hours working on the challenge. It's raining here and doesn't look very inviting to go out. So the beads and I have a date!
