Dang bead blocks!




I've been 'suffering' under the black cloud of ....the infamous **BEAD BLOCK**! I've been getting this way more lately and it's not fun---I don't know if it's because I don't have time to concentrate, or no good ideas ( no- i have a little journal of ideas--it isn't that) maybe trying to do too many other things and not having time- I don't know-but- I hope I broke thru again-

One of my cccoe buddies, OceanAvenueSilks, dyed some silk ribbon and cord for me for a project I had in mind---the silks were gorgeous purples--ahhhh--and after getting them, my idea about the project--a beadwoven herringbone tube with ribbon thru it and tied for a bracelet---changed. After talking to OAS, we kind of decided that maybe tying and untying the silk would not be good---so, while trying to figure out a clasp, decided that my project would look great as a choker---so, here it is---
Purple Dawn

---I just love the colors and love the ribbon and cord that OAS made for me ---please check out her etsy shop at http://OceanAvenueSilks.etsy.com - she has beautiful hand dyed scarves and goodies!
