The Excavation, Part 1

Moving the studio is an enlightening process.

Okay, it's also a giant pain in the butt, but I'm a "glass half full" kinda gal.

Anyway, in the process, I've found a couple of interesting things -- half-completed projects, forgotten pieces,      etc, etc, etc...

Here's one piece I found that had been lying around, waiting for its clasp to be fabricated and woven on.

"Swirl", the newly rediscovered and completed necklace

I remember buying the focal bead in D.C. about, oh, three years ago, and working the necklace up pretty quickly after I got home again.  Why it sat unfinished for so long is one of those archaeological mysteries best left for the ages.


Anyway, it's done and completed, and ready to go to Alabama for my next show in a few weeks.

Can't wait to see what else turns up during this studio move!

So pretty! I have a bowl full of single, unfinished earrings. Yeah I know I should finish them but I like designing more then finishing!

Ohh, it must be like digging up treasures! Sometimes I find forgotten, unfinished pieces when I attempt to tidy up my bead table, and I'm both thrilled that I found it, and discusted that I let it go for so long.

Your necklace is just gorgeous!!!

These colors are just perfect for the cool snap in the air that's greeting us these mornings. I would love to see this necklace with plum. Good luck with your Alabama show!

Love "Swirl."
Cleaning = who knew there was treasure involved? :)
