The one in progress is a colorway done by Petra Tismer while test beading from the German directions in preparation for helping me in the classroom. It's very soft and vintage looking in antique silvers and matte ivories. I finished the focal during yesterdays long flight and started the band. I may do some beading on it today.
I've given myself the day off but as always happens with re-entry into one's normal life, there are bank trips and grocery trips and a rental car that needs to be returned. It was quicker to drive home from LAX rather then waiting for a five hour layover.
I'm off to make tea and settle into a day of beading in the studio, I think it is just what I need!
