What Is It??? And What The Heck Do I Do With It???
A while back I did some clay cabochons if you remember, and I was looking forward to beading with them. I ordered some beads from Artbeads.com to go with the pink and white cab that I made. It's been sitting there for quite a long time. Every now and again I would pull it out and wonder what the heck I was going to do with it. Some of the beads were not the right shades of pink...one was too pale and the other was too hot. And then I thought, "That sure is a whooooole lotta pink!" Dang. I just remembered my last post when many of you said you didn't like pink. Now I'm going to be embarrassed to show this to you.
Ok, onward anyways because it's the only thing I have sort of done to show you. I promise my next something or other won't be pink.
To try to counterbalance some of the pink I added a little green, and there is white to also soften it. When I got to the outer edge I felt soooo dumb because I couldn't do a picot. I thought, how basic is that and I can't figure it out??? So I stopped thinking about it and took a break. Wouldn't you know it? When I wasn't thinking about it a light bulb went off in my head and I could see in my mind how to do it. Yea! I'm not so dumb after all!!! But I don't know. It kind of looks like a cake. Or the top view of a frilly hat.
I have no idea what to do with this. (It's 3" x 2.75") Put a pin back on it and call it a brooch? Make a beaded bail, bead a rope and make a pendant on a necklace? Or, put it in a drawer and call it practice, never to see the light of day again??? Well I can't do that. That would be a waste. Should I rip it apart and salvage the Swarovski's and other beads to be used another day?
I think I need to ponder this one for a while and go back to my boring project. What do you all think?
