I guess there is no point really to my ramblings except to say that I had just a little bit of the edging to finish when I got off the phone with Angela. I knew I wanted to get it done, and man were those last few inches ever so hard to finish! My hands were shaking so badly, I kept poking my fingers with my needle and my thread kept getting tangled the wrong way and I had a heck of a time keeping it straight. But I powered through. I call it Drops of Honey because the amber shell discs looked like, well, big drops of honey. The color in them is so rich and yummy. There are 5 discs going around the band. The bracelet is 1 1/4" wide. It's very simple in it's design...I wanted the honey drops to stand out and take center stage.
I have so many new and wonderful beads to work with, thanks to my generous Dad and his birthday gift to me. However, given my current state, it looks like this attack with last through the night and I will probably need tomorrow to recover. And tomorrow is therapy day...those are always rough. So it may be a day or two before I start on something new. Who knows. I'll just have to see how it goes. You can click on the photo, btw, if you want a larger view.
