Atelier One Sixth: Dispatches! An unholy merger of blogs (the old & the new), featuring tiny hats, arts, crafts, writing, & baking. “Though this be madness, yet there is method in’t.” Probably.
WARNING: occasional bad swears.
I spent two days working out how I wanted this to be constructed and another two days bringing it into being. I haven't done much wire wrapping in a long, long time. Even something as simple as a wrapped loop. Doing so much and all at once, I had forgotten how easy it is to stick, clip, pinch and generally torment one's fingers.
Work in progress; beads were identified as "fancy glass" from China (purchased at Wal-Mart) and no size given - sizes appear to include 11°, 10° and 8°, with many irregular shapes. The finishes have been stabilized with fixative. I can't decide if this is going to be a neckpiece or a multistrand bracelet. I have enough beads strung to make both. I love the crazy texture.
