It's more like 2 hours with beads, then 5 mins of studying, then 5 mins of getting bored, then 45 mins of beads, then 10 mins of reading, then 15 mins of complete frustration... Tongue (Plus the necessary time for cig breaks and craftster browsing! And don't forget random internet shopping. Curse you, Visa! Curse you, Paypal!)

Aaaand, my day/night rhythm is a total mess. I went to sleep around 7 AM and woke up at 4 PM... once again. And the exam's 8 AM on friday. Guess who's gonna be dead tired, on top of it all? :F

Haha, I feel like whining, sorry Cheesy

Back to the topic at hand: I just completed one strange brown necklace with suede and freshwater pearls and stuff, let's see if I can get a decent photo out of it. (Actually I'm not sure if it's completed or not so I think I'll need some opinions on that.)

Okay, I managed to take some pics.


Tethys-earrings on a card, the second pair I've made. Much better than the original pair...


Tethys-necklace, or a part of it, on a card. Also the second I've made of these.

And then, for the controversial necklace which I just finished:

Nest Materials -necklace, made out of suede, satin ribbon, freshwater pearls, fluorite, tourmalines, smoky quartz, brass and sterling silver.


... and a closeup.

I'm not sure if I should add something to Nest Materials or take something away or what... uuh. I think I'll try again tomorrow, I'm afraid I've stared at the piece for so long I've lost all ability to judge it. And yeah, it's supposed to be asymmetrical and, uh, for lack of a better word, "strange" Smiley I think symmetrical necklaces are most often completely dull. Not my kind of thing at all!

The brown one is very unique and interesting!  I'd love to see an action shot!

I really like Nest Materials but I think maybe it would be better without the suede. Not because I don't love the idea of it ('cos I do) but I think it's just one too many lines if you know what I mean Huh

The rest of your pieces are beautiful also Grin

Great job on all.  Love your unconventional necklace.  Yes, it's random, but it also holds together as a single piece.

Cajun Afterglow is my favourite. I would never have thought that fabric mixed in there would look so good!
