Time...What Time

I have been so busy tiring to create and design jewelry for Christmas gifts, I realized last night I haven't finished any of projects.  With 15 days left I have a lot to pull off.  I have a total of 8 projects to finish, start, or something in between. 

I am doing a bracelet for my niece, that after it is complete it will be Marilyn Monroe's face made out of 9 different seed beads.  I have gotten about 1/3 of the way done when 2 of the beads broke.  The beads then acted as a saw and cut through the string and voila as I am stitching beads start falling off.  So back to the tedious beginning I go.  I had to put down because I got so frustrated trying to read the pattern after I had already crossed through the 87 lines I had completed.

Well I have finished a couple of inspiration pieces.  The cuff I blogged about earlier this week and this little cutie.  I call "Dance" because the pear or tear shaped jade in the center reminds me of gentle movement like a dance.

  Happy Holidays and may your gifts include creativity

  1. That must be so frustrating for you, I know how much I hate to pull out knitting when I've made a mistake! I love your new necklace, the ribbon looks so pretty with it too :)
    Can't wait to hang out tomorrow.
