Week 6: Crafty Procrastination Beads

Procrastination Beads

I’m currently struggling with an order that requires a little thinking. Not much but just enough that I keep avoiding it. Sometimes, this means I do a dozen other semi-related projects on the way to the one. In this case… many, many beads including a few that are really far off my norm like the little soccer ball beads (right out of Yonat’s useful little tutorial).

The teal and brown flower discs were a tangent from yet ANOTHER avoided project. I told myself I would make petal canes to sell in my Etsy shop. I keep trying to make cute petal canes and not use them but er… I fail. This is one of the results. I’ll probably list some of the beads though! Or use them all, like last time.

The thinking part of the order is that I have to slightly alter my regular rose cane to make a more furled, cabbage rose like rose cane. The slices of lavender rose disc in the bead pile are my first try on this and I like it. The shading and shaping need a little playing with yet.
