I forgot to take pictures of Kelly's piece for the jewelry swap. I packed it up and sealed the box, taped it shut and brought it with me to work so I would remember to ship it later. Then I realised I don't have friggin photos. Hopefully she will post a picture or two on her blog, (and maybe let me borrow one so I can talk about the creation process. Since noone likes a picture-less blog, here is some blurry bead soup!
I used these silver peanut beads for the first time, and all the friggin silver came off on my hands. I wasn't even using a really bead-fondle-y technique. Bah! Stupid peanuts...Well, now they're silver lined...More on that after she gets ner piece. I didn't even realize the problem until I was past the point of no return. Pass the word to our fellow beaders, peanut beads =/= finish-fast >:-(
