I need to donate a piece for our neighborhood Gourmet Spaghetti Dinner. This year it is raising funds for the Bernard Memorial Dog Park, a cause doubly close to my heart. First, it is a very much needed in our neighborhood dog park, and it is named for my dear departed friend, Jay Bernard, of Jay Design soap store. Because it is so important to me, I wanted to donate something special, not the usual strung bracelet, or simple earrings.
I dug out this lariat made with St. Petersburg chain that I made last year and never finished. I guess I realized that I would not wear this green and pink necklace, so I did not finish it. (I do not like pink!!!) I made a few Russian leaves and flowers, ala Lisa Kan in her book, Bead Romantique. I have one side done, only one more to do, then I can go back to what I want to work on!!
Of course, I still have my long term project, the beaded cigar box, but I can't find it. How many active projects are you working on?
