Oh, I was a little ball of pain when I woke up this morning. A definite kickback day after my run of good days. But that’s ok, and the feeling of having flu hadn’t returned – I just needed to rest.
So, rest I did, dozing on and off until gone 2pm. I must have needed it tho, because when I woke up I had a burst of enthusiasm…..I wanted to do something. However, just getting to the loo made me shout in pain, so it had to be something I could do sitting in bed. I felt like a change from loom kniting tho, so I decided on some beading instead. It probably took me longer to gather the stuff I needed than it did to make the thing LOL but here is the result of today’s endeavors.
A beaded ring, that I made using this tutorial from Beadifulnights on You Tube.
I really like the way Aleshia does her videos, her narrative is very good, as well as the visuals, and she is a very talented young lady.
The camera hasn’t picked up the colours of the Superduo beads very well – the middle 4 are a kind of metallic teal colour, and the ones around those are metallic purple. But they all came from a mix called ‘Midnight’.
The seed beads are size 11 Toho, black ones on the band and ‘petrol’ finish on the top.
The bicones I used were in a tub of ‘black’, and they most definitely looked black when I was using them, but the camera has made them look like a very deep garnet colour
But I am extremely pleased with how it’s turned out, and it really was easy. I like big bold rings, and can see myself making a few more of these in different colourways because it’s extremely comfortable to wear too 😀
