It's Just Like Starting Over
I was going through my box of "fix me's", things that needed repair, things bought to be taken apart and turned into something else, or things that just didn't come out the way I'd hoped. I pulled out a necklace that I'd had high hopes for at the time but the more I looked at it the more I just didn't like it. And that little kink in the wire didn't help matters.
It sat in that box for a year waiting for something to happen to it, and that time was now. I pulled out my trusty snips and... several bags of wonderful NEW beads now sit before me to play with. I wonder what new works will be born from this necklace's ashes?
I mentioned to someone that I recycle my beads and they didn't understand why, beads were so cheap. Not to put places like Michaels and JoAnn's down but all beads don't cost $3-4 a tube. And what's the point of having something lying around collecting dust because it's not being worn when you can turn it into something that will?
This is another piece from my attempt at stringing days (I prefer beadweaving) that lasted until I realized it just wasn't right.
Now I've finally come up with what I want to do to make this one live up to it's original name: "The Coffee Angel Understands".
Snip! Snip! Snip!
