I went through all my beads and pulled out all the reds...seed beads in 15s, 11s and 8s, small round glass beads, glass hearts, daggers (I decided against those) and crystals. It seemed so well...red...I needed to add something to give it some pop! I was going to use white but then purple just jumped in.
I sat down at my beading table and well .....nothing....yikes! Finally I just let go of any fear and started. All was going well and I had made some progress when to my dismay the crystals cut my thread and all my hard work came undone. I wanted to just walk away and forget it, but a challenge is challenge and it must be met. I diligently went back at it; added beads and stitched again and the end result was Joy!
Note to self -do not use those kind of crystals again!
Both my daughters love the necklace so I guess it was a success.
