Tally Ho

Thanks for all of your comments on the last post. I’ve written more back story but. . . I’d rather move on the time being. To beading, of course. I got the opportunity to work with my new Aiko beads. I’m actually not entirely crazy about them. Uniformity – top notch, but they are just a wee bit bigger than my Delicas and that does, for some reason, bothers me. However, decide for yourself.

At first I named this piece “Lava,” then I wasn’t sure it really exemplified the work. It wasn’t until I was taking photographs of it that I determined the perfect name for it.

This full view shows the Swarovski crystals I used in the chain.

And, the photo from whence its name came . . .
