I liked how the red and black crystals showed up between the pearls but I don't like the donut. So the project needs some rethinking when my brain starts working again. Later on in the evening I was looking up an obscure type of embroidery and came up with this link to a beautiful piece of wirework jewelry http://www.flickr.com/photos/gypsymoonartstudio/4853400500/in/faves-ederajewelry/
Even though it was late I got out some 16 gauge copper wire and started to make my own version.
It is not nearly as nice as the above link, but to my credit it is handworked. I don't use a wire tool like a Whirly gig. But after looking at the first piece I am inspired to get a wire wrapping tool and creating my own wirework designs. My hands are still screaming at me!
While looking for some yarn I did find the tatted doily. Perhaps I will wok on that today!
