A bit of cubic raw and then some loops from each corner which capture a Swarovski fancy stone under the loops.
I could see that the loops exited from an interior corner bead, but once I did that, there was no way to travel to the next corner, and the loops were close together and didn't capture the stone as well. I was stumped, I looked and looked and couldn't sort out how I did it.
I put it aside and went to bed and as so often happens I woke up knowing the answer. I don't remember my brain working it out (sometimes I do, sometimes I draw thread paths in my sleep) but this time I just woke up in the middle of the night and realized that my loops were going the wrong way.
I've got a bit of solid time in front of me right now, good design time and a sketchbook full of ideas for The Bead Within. So my time will be spent in the studio, the really clean studio, developing my ideas into finished pieces.
I love the quiet of serious studio time. We are putting together more Dream Keeper rings, as the original production run have all sold out and we have many more orders. Supplies should arrive today or tomorrow and then we'll get them made up and shipped out. I'm hoping to release one more color as well. The last color is named for a friend whose having a bit of a medical challenge right now and I wanted to send her a dream, and some strength. The rings are good for that, tucking in a private message for a loved on.
