in the works

I recently sold this long admired bracelet.  I went digging through all of my brightly colored buttons to see if I had enough little ones left to make any more.  It took me a while to sell the original two, but they always got a lot of hearts and views on Etsy.

I was pretty surprised that I found so many, especially in this many different colors.  I'm not sure when I'll make them, but I have them set aside in one of my little "to do" piles.

I've started working on my November challenge piece.  I wasn't planning on working the blues in different layers, but it really works better that way with the spiral.  I'm sorting the beads as I go.
You can see the glass beads that I'll be pairing with the seed beads in this post from last week.  This piece is going to be fairly slow going so I will most likely be working on some smaller projects in the middle of it.
