I did finally bust out the beads and made three necklaces this past week. I don't have the patience for very intricate bead work (I use to, but lost the book on the how-tos and can't remember anything fancy) so they are pretty simple, but still fun and relaxing for me to do.
This one below is lime green small beads and triangle and square green beads mixed in with brown wooden cylinders.
I am actually working on an art piece at the moment as well with my "special" mixed media. Shhh.... it's a secret, can't tell.
