Here are me and Sarah, a 7-year book club member, trying to make our earrings. The actual picking out of the beads took longer than the wiring and stringing. It might be difficult to tell in the photos below, but my bead box is positively overflowing with beads of all colors shapes and sizes. There’s got to be some sort of correlation between my copious collection and personality type because all the other gals had very clean bead trays, with only the minimum of perfectly chosen beads. Then again, I’ve been in all of their homes. Their houses are definitely cleaner and more organized than mine… (hm, correlation? I think so!)
All in all, the experience was a blast. I’m thankful for good friends, the opportunity to learn a new craft and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
