My Finished Bead ProjectIt took me a few more weeks than expected to finish this project due to the complications from two major surgeries on August 20th. At last it is done. It was a blast! Here are the beads my partner, KK Koon sent me.
Two of the beads could be focal points so I used both and incorporated them together. The large shell had a hole for a bale but the smaller one had amber in it with no hole. I wire wrapped it and attached them together. Naturally I didn't have the proper wire for wrapping and couldn't get out to get any, so I used round wire. Very interesting!
This was a fun challenge learning to use wire in different ways. Many of my friends who've stopped by to see me while recuperating have enjoyed watching this project come together. But not as much as I've enjoyed creating it. Finished at last and now to wear it in public!
What I discovered yesterday was that I wish I had a bracelet to attach to my copper watch face. So guess what?! I'm going to make that this week with the rest of the beads KK sent me. Will post that picture ASAP.
