My latest pair of earrings are a perfect example of this. When I put down my beading needle last night I felt they were at the ugly duckling stage. I decided to leave them to sort themselves out overnight. This morning when I looked at them I knew just what they wanted me to do. They needed a long glass bead between the two leaves at the bottom. I went over to the bank of little drawers that hold my bead mixes, put my hand in the first one and pulled out….. two little green dagger beads. Viola!
Now the earrings are a much better shape and are starting to look elfin and pretty. Beads have magic within them.
Before I started on these I finished my blue bead embroidered necklace. It has rekindled my love for the technique and I will certainly be doing a lot more embroidered pieces in future.
