All the pretty things
Working with beads can be meditative like knitting, except with more pliers. I saw some earrings while shopping for beads and thought ‘I have some flowers like that, and some brass bead caps too! I could make those!’ I got on a roll and made several pairs in the last few days. Unlike painting and sculpting, it’s tough to stay perfectly original in beading since you’re building things with the same components that are available to other crafters. It is still a joy to put together pretty little baubles that bring smiles to faces.
