I am very happy to report that I've been making some good progress towards some of this month's earlier projects. Hurray! Not only that, but for fun I decided to take pictures of them with the Cincinnati snow as a backdrop. After all, why not? Snow can be pretty, too. :)
So, first up: the pink tassel necklace that I started two weeks ago, for the first Wednesday's Worktable of the year.
While I'm still not done, I have finally finished the tassel part:
Now I just have to make the rest of the necklace to go with it. Heh.
And now to share what the tassel looks like, against my wintry-white backyard:
As with all the tassels that I make, I just love the way that it drapes--and I love the way the pink looks against the snow. :)
Next up, the paper bead necklace that I started last week.
I am very happy to report that I finished this project. In fact, I ended up making both the paper bead necklace and a pair of matching earrings. Here is the finished picture compilation that I shared on Instagram:
And now, here are the snow pictures!
Feel free to click on them to make them bigger... And, while some of them have a wonky color-balance, I really like way that the light shines off of the beads. And the way the paper beads look against the snow. And, well, this is just a hard necklace to picture, and these shots just make me happy.
|I liked the off-center focus of this one.|
So, there you go! Thank you for joining me for this update/excuse to show lots of pictures... I always appreciate it when you stop by.
Have a great day, everyone!
