It is amazing how a minor tweak with an accent bead can move a necklace with identical components from controlled to playful.
I have been eager to try a mix of ‘rock’ beads with the sea urchin spikes. Initially, I thought blending the colors with the spikes would be most successful combination. While it works…it doesn’t ‘POP’!
Staring at me from my work surface were the beads that had been rejected in the earlier design. They give the finished design a completely different personality.
I am eager to ‘play’ with Plan C. Paprika mixed with Kato translucent makes a coppery/brown color that appears to match the brown tips of the spikes. HMMMM…don’t you just love the ‘what if’ road?
FYI: Last spring I shared my breast cancer diagnosis. I am happy to report that the chemo therapy was 100% successful. I start radiation therapy tomorrow, but that has been shortened from 6 to 4 weeks.
My hair is starting to grow back…yikes!!! I think my ‘killer’ wig and scarves will be a part of my attire until I get the go ahead for color. Unfortunately, that is several months away.
Thank you for your messages, gifts and cards during the last 6 months. All of these contributed to the successful outcome.
