I was very anxious to start beading this evening, since I had an idea burning in my head all day. I was about halfway finished with a pearl bracelet, strung on memory wire with a flower focal, when the chair I was sitting in broke! I wound up on the floor (but managed to not unstring what I had strung!). In all fairness to me, our dining room set is rather old. We inherited it from a cousin after it had been passed along to them from another relative. It fits well with the style of our house, but unfortunately it isn't in the greatest shape--as I was reminded tonight! Travis got a big kick out of it. Hannah just gave me a "poor mom" hug. Guess it's time to get serious about that diet!
The bracelet turned out just as I had imagined, though, and I put together some pearl earrings to compliment it.
I think the bracelet has a very summery, romantic feel to it and the pearls in the earrings match those in the bracelet. Not bad for something I wound up finishing while standing!
