Branching Out - Slightly


I'm not one for resolutions or bucket lists, but I've had it in mind for some time to learn some beading. And, like anything new, the mere thought terrified me. Yesterday I took a deep breath, followed the instructions, wielded my "4 in 1" pliers tool thingey, and produced these marvels. They're not all perfect, but I will be giving one set of earrings to a friend tomorrow as a belated holiday gift. The knitting continues, but don't be surprised if there are a few more bead interludes in the works as well!

This is a slippery slope you're on, Oogy. I have come to believe that beads are just as addictive as yarn. They come in an infinite number of beautiful colors and the combinations are endless. And they make useful and beautiful items, as you have demonstrated here.
