My Work Table This Week

Actually the work table is a bit crowded to work on.  I should probably put that at the top of my list to clean off.  I just got back into the flow of jewelry making.  I took some time off following the holiday bazaars & just enjoyed time with the family - and the new camera lens.

I started my first project this year.  This kit was on my Christmas list & I received it thanks to my mother & father in law.  It was a first for me to just buy a kit & try it out.  The first 2 rows were difficult.  It took about 20 minutes to get it sorted out.  I had the hardest time keeping track of whether I added a new bead, passed through or skipped.  Once I got going it was relaxing but I kept thinking to myself, "I'm going to make an entire bracelet from this?  Thank goodness my wrist is small."  It's a great prep for this class on Tuesday:

I can't wait to take my second class with the LB o J'azz ladies.  If you're local & want to come, click on the class name for the link.  Picture courtesy of LB o J'azz.
I'm a serious ring junkie & I think this will be fun.  Think of all the fun colors :)  The class comes with a kit they've put together & they never disappoint with the color choices.

The rest of these projects are hold overs from last year.  I don't know how I start or ever finish projects.  I am all over the place.  When the inspiration hits, I go with it, hence I start a bajillion projects.  The last picture is some new crystals in a marea finish, which is a favorite of mine at the moment, paired with some seed beads I already had in my stash.

This post is a result of the Blog Triage Class & one of my goals to blog more frequently in the upcoming year.  My list is here.  Lots of good stuff to blog about!
