My current bead room has an oriental run covering most of the floor.
Beautiful, right? Not when you drop beads on it.
There is a 4mm emerald faceted firepolished bead somewhere on this carpet.
|What, can't you see the bead? Yeah, me neither.|
|The escapee's companions. They may know where the other one fell, |
but they're not talking.
Normally, I would let this go and figure it's just more fodder for the vacuum cleaner. But I'm in the middle of making the second earring in a woven set, and now I'm ONE FLIPPING GREEN BEAD SHORT. So now I'm going to have to play "Where's Waldo" with the bead, or find a customer who likes to wear only one earring.
Yes, that will be me, on my hands and knees, peering like a CSI investigator at the rug, muttering vaguely vulgar words under my breath...If I find the bead, I'll post a photo of the completed earrings!
