Swept Away

For no apparent reason. I've been swept away. In a flurry of making beaded jewelry for a couple of days. Amethyst. Amber. Beach glass blues and greens. Calling. Put us together and make bracelets. The tide comes in and goes back out. Circular. The bead goddess beckons. And I follow.
"Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

I love beads, so I no longer allow myself in the bead store. All those shiny beads and cool hardware is too much for me. And then i don't know what to do with them.

I get the calling - and then have NO idea what I am doing or what to buy.

So I am not allowed to buy anymore. :) Your stash looks beautiful, tho.

No beading here, but I've been taken up by ropework. Friday, I'd never heard of a round sinnet, now I can weave one while watching TV. ;-)

So go the crafty adventures.

I have many beads but no direction for them. I just like to run my fingers through them.

Necklaces, maybe?...maybe Christmas presents I can get done now?

What do you do when you can't think of a necklace design? Do they design themselves for you?

Not that I have any talent in it MYSELF. But I hear making jewelry is very therapeutic. I go to the local bead shows sometimes to run my hands through the selection and sigh wistfully. :)
