Creative Chaos



Looking around while sitting at my computer tonight in the midst of my beading projects and supplies and answering email, I realized it was probably time to clean up my work area. My goodness, if Mom saw this mess she would most certainly remind me of my teenage bedroom.



So, I role on over to the working part of my desk and look around. Watermellon tourmaline in the process of be made into focal pieces, Akoya pearls looking for ideas and sitting with some beautiful real sapphire and ruby beads. Somehow, they need to go together. 100 inch fresh water pearl strands everywhere. Copper wire, silver wire, a mess of tools, several unfinished and finished projects, a cat hair roller??? Not really sure why that is there. Oh yea, gotta get rid of the cat hair on the black velvet stand. Hmmm.

Straighten, straighten....progress....smile....Oh, what a pretty amethyst....wonder if I have other stones to match....or....london blue, yah, I know I have london blue. Now where did I put that....

Cleaning, what cleaning....leave me alone, I'm creating.!
That of course was the end of my straightening for the night but here's what came of my cleaning spree. You'll have to tell me whether I should have kept right on cleaning.....




9x7 mm Peridot, White Topaz, Amethyst, London Blue Topaz and a Pink Spinel in Sterling Silver bracelet. Adjusts up to an 8" wrist.
Look for this and other chaotic creations in my etsy shop A Beaded Affair and while you are there check out all my favorite shops and visit all the creative, talented and maybe not quite as chaotic ladies and gentlemen of the eSmarts Team.

Definitely good you did not clean. How are those stones attached to the bracelet?

I prong set them in sterling settings. I like them much better than the snap set type which doesn't quite look prong set and these really are.

Have no idea what that means :-)
Another thing I might have to learn someday. When I'm retired, instead of just tired.

That is a beautiful, beautiful bangle. Definitely worth a rummage through the bench :)

Lovely creation and peek into your design world. BTW I love the window topper and is that stained glass or gallery glass? You know me totally OT!

Lovely.....and I think that if you're Mom saw your creative mess....she might START to say something....then she'd see something sparkling & all would be forgotten except for the sparkle. I think most people's workspace looks like that most of the time. Mine does.
