Number one was the winner and yesterday while beading with friends I made myself a little component (the one in the photo is reserved for an other project) and I bezeled in the navette stone.
I'm pretty darn pleased with the result! Now to find something to wear it with.
Top down and side view so you can appreciate both the form and the layered construction of that top bit. Oh and the original, so you can see how it was fancied up!
Some of you might remember that I promised to open the kit store in January….and it's still my plan. I have some Beading by the Bay work to finish this week (if you're waiting on that) and then onto kits. Finding this retirement balance turns out to be not so easy. I seem to putter a lot and I just realized that a deadline I thought was in November is in April. But I will try to have a little more focus and get some of your favorite kits available soon.
