WOYWW - Work in Progress

So today the picture was taken upstairs in the office, and is the work in progress from the previous post on Monday, which was the UK Inspiration challenge.  For a closer look at the beads, and indeed more detail on the challenge keep on reading past the end of this post.

Since I posted on Monday, I have really only added more of the green beads to the end, and used a Tim Holtz Garment Pin as the closure at one end.  As I was putting on the green beads, I noticed that two of the copper shells always twist the wrong way - I have put them on the incorrect place on their links, and so I need to go back and fix this.  It looks a bit sparse with just the one jump ring and green bead on these links, especially as the other beads are large'ish, so I will add more, some with copper jump rings and some with silver and just a splash of pink as I go (I was thinking of the Sea Thrift you see growing on the cliff edge).

There is a lot going on around here, mostly personal stuff, but also Stamp Galaxy has a 5% discount on the Yellow, Yellow/Green and Yellow/Red Colour Sketches until Monday, so it has been quite busy there.

I need to find a coffee now and head off over to Fair Queen Julia's to see what all the WOYWW desks are up to.

Happy Wednesday one and all.

There are some lovely beads on your desk Kay and the bracelet is looking good, like the idea you have used for the closure too, very inventive. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #65

I love works in progress. They're so full of potential and it's fun to guess what's coming next. I'm usually wrong!

Hello Kay,
Sunday gives me time to play so here I am. Your bead work looks terrific and I love the tool handling that comes with it. I have a life-long love affair with tools.
Some of those beads are really lovely.

I'm REALLY late getting round to people this week - family life getting in the way!

So, I figured I'd better pop in and at least say thanks for stopping by!
