I made a green netting bangle earlier this year which is headed to Minneapolis this month and I decided I was wearing it so much that I wanted to use the plum beads that I was toting around. I was a bit stumped as to what to fill in the gap between the netting since its not completely even with the bangle size when I came across this long dyed freshwater pearl. I think the pearl has been floating around my bead stash since my college days.
Speaking of college days, I have been trying to clean out the disaster that I currently call a studio and have been running into all sorts of UFOs (UnFinished Objects). I think I need to start filling a garbage can so I can think straight as I sift through, however, what if I get rid of something that would be of use in 10 years?! Always the struggle.
This plum netting bangle can be seen at the Lansing Art Gallery right now for this 2017 Holiday show.
