It started out with a 23mm Swarovski crystal button, sterling silver wire, and some seed beads.
Then I spent several happy hours wire wrapping an assortment of beads until the button was surrounded and the frame was covered.
I have a penchant for pattern and symmetry, so this project was challenging at first. But I forced myself to let go and gradually reached the point that I found the process to be very relaxing. I focused on the sparkle of each individual bead as I strung it on the wire and slowly began to appreciate the chaotic beauty of the emerging design. It was very freeing. I am already planning my next pendant.
Finally, I heard the witty and wise Haywood Smith speak at the monthly meeting of the Georgia Romance Writers yesterday morning. I will share more about that tomorrow.
I hope you got what you needed this weekend, too!
