Since the things I have been working on generally only take a few hours to a few days I was able to shop you a piece I had in my head become a piece of jewelry.
It all started with this component from Nancy Schindler of Round Rabbit.

I wanted to make a bracelet with it. So I turned it on it's side. I was determined so when my husband came in and said "no way" I didn't listen and kept right on combining beads.
I got the bracelet almost finished, it looked great. I was going to leave it as a bracelet. I tried it on and still liked it as a bracelet.
I made the clasp and set the bracelet down on the bead table and it said "I want to be a necklace!" Really loud. So I cut it all apart and restrung it into a necklace.
A glimpse into the crazy world that is my bead table/kitchen island. It took all day to make this necklace. I had a dream about the bracelet design a couple of days ago but have been working at the salon so I had no time. I got the beads out last night (my beads are now stored in our spare bedroom and not on the dining room table) and I was able to assemble/dis-assemble/re-assemble the piece while my daughter had her nap this afternoon. Oh and we have no heat, not sure what happened but my daughter actually napped while my husband's father came over to take a look at the broken furnace!
