I know I sound like a broken record. Yesterday I thought everything was getting better. Today I learned that this is not the case. While one thing is going into a more positive direction, there is a new desaster that popped up, which is even worse than the first one. I was thinking if I should write it all down here, but I think nobody really wants to hear this kind of stuff.
I am moving from scared into a permanent panic mode, and the only thing that kept me a bit sane today was a large glass of red wine and some beading time. Remember that commitment thing, that I talked about in the ABS carnival blog post? Now tomorrow I should actually have my 3 designs done, but I won't. I made one today, and maybe a second one tomorrow. I think I need to rethink my commitment to myself versus the commitment to other people. But I need to say, part of the reason was that I picked my three favorite art beads / pendants, and I want to make something really special with them, not just something.
So here is the first one, that I finished today. I bought some rubber tube the other day, and yesterday this design finally came to me. It was perfectly fitting (in my mind) with Kelley's Egg. I hammered some 18g copper wire, added the tube and Kelley's egg, and did some wire-wrapping with and without seed beads. I hope you like it.
Let's see if I can get a second one done tomorrow - so maybe I am at least 66% committed to myself (would be at least better than 33%).
