I really wanted to make another Double Spiral Necklace. Only this time in purple. Here’s what I ended up with.
Want a closer look?
The problem is it’s supposed to look like this:
Let’s look at them side by side.
This is what happens when you don’t take notes the first time around.
I’m not saying that I don’t like what I came up with. I’m actually undecided. Only if you’re expecting one thing and you end up with another, it might not always be a pleasant surprise.
If you’re wondering why I did a whole necklace the “wrong” way, it’s because I didn’t really notice the difference until I was a couple of inches in and I decided to just keep going.
This is actually my second try at the second rendition of the Double Spiral. The first isn’t finished and will have to wait another day for a public unveiling. :P
I’m not sure I’m going to keep this necklace. Every time I look at it I think, “it’s wrong! wrong, wrong wrong!”
I’m going to hide it for a bit then see how I feel about it later.
I could have actually said that I was purposefully trying for a different effect, but I’m just trying to keep it real here. ;-P
There was a bead show over the weekend. That was like a consolation prize for being such a dunce over this seemingly simple necklace.
Of course I ended up with more Green Girl beads. I even got a toggle and a button from her booth. What I really wanted to share are these cool beads that were only $12 a strand. I’m already making a necklace with them. It might take a bit of time to finish it though since I’m using seed beads.
That’s it from me today. I woke up at 6:30am after going to bed at 1am. I’m pooped!
I hope you all had a great weekend!
