I was happy with my choices, I really liked the idea of using magatamas in place of the pearls since I love the look of drop beads as an edging. It wouldn't be Runway of Pearls anymore, but that was okay! Well, after several attempts at making this work, I gave up. As I said in the beginning I hate to give up on something, but sometimes you have to know when to do that. I was spending way too much time on a project that wasn't working out the way I wanted it to. I thought the problem was with me and my choice to size up. But, then I discovered that others in the Beading Babes group were having other problems with the pattern. So, I tried one more time, and I changed the size of the beads down to what was called for. But, I still wasn't happy with the bracelet, so I decided it was time to just get over it and move on. The result of all this is that I don't have a completed project for this round of the Beading Babes. I'm really sorry about that but one of the reasons that I joined the group is that Karyn said when she formed the Babes that there was no pressure to fiinish a project. I liked the idea that I could opt out when life intervened or I just didn't have the time or inclination to work on something. So, unfortunately, I don't have a lovely finished bracelet to show you. But, I'm sure all the other Babes do, so visit Karyn's blog and check them all out when she has them posted! And, next time I'll have a new necklace or bracelet to show you too!
Thanks for checking in and have a great day! Make something wonderful!
