Peach Blue Green
I've been working on another project that has been taking what seems like forever because it hurts my hands and I have to stop and switch gears a lot. In between sessions with the project I chose 3 tubes of beads that I showed you pictures of the other day that I wanted to work with. I made a simple little choker (14 1/2") of a pretty little flower chain with blue and peach flowers and green stems. I think it turned out super cute. My daughter was wearing her P.E. t-shirt, which just wouldn't do for photos, so I recruited her friend, Taylor, to be my model. Sami laughed at her. lol. I'm not showing her face, though, because she's not my kid and I wouldn't feel right about posting her. Pretty as she is and as good a model as she was, I'm going to err on the side of caution.
I've had a very horrible couple of days and it feels like the weight of the world crushing down on me. I am not it well at all. My therapist has been out on medical leave since December, and my only therapeutic outlet has been my beading. This simple little flower chain I worked on helped to lighten my thoughts. Maybe I should do 3 or 4! lol Actually, maybe I should. It would look great in so many color variations, from dark with sparkles to bright and happy or delicate and sweet, it does have a lot of possibilities within its simplicity. Ok, here it is...
