If you have been with me on this blog you know that lupus took a lot away from me. The most it took was my ability to bead. I made my living creating in beads for most of my life. It has been a difficult loss on so many levels. This last month though something in me wanted to bead, needed to bead. I finished two pieces. It was beyond frustrating. I have no feeling in my hands and they shake. I drop things a 100 times a day. So I rubbed my fingers with bees wax so I could at least know where the beading needle is. In my day of beading I was an extremely fast beader so to have to take all this time to create just two pieces was also part of the frustration. However, I still have the magic. I would say I still have the touch but that won't work will it. 😁 I am happy to show you these two pieces.
These also make numbers 132 for the bolo and 134 for the necklace of my Arty Everyday I have other art to make up the numbers in between that I will show on another post.
My piece began like this. However as I started to bead I knew the small cab was not going to work.
DH loves to wear bolos I have made them all so he asked if I could make a new one for him.
So the small cab became this.
Then is was time to finish my new necklace.
The photos don't show it but both pieces are very shinny with dicro glass, and Swarovski crystals.
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
