I was so excited to win a kit, and am so thrilled to participate in this hop. I have to say it kind of snuck on me though! I was thinking about the hops and challenges I plan on participating in, and I realized I did not know the due dates for them. I looked and found the date for this one. Which wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't my spring break the next week (which was this week). I was going to New York and Savannah! I actually am writing this from a Starbucks in New York, but I definitely knew I couldn't bring my beads with me. I knew I was pressed for time, but I still wanted to make sure I made beautiful pieces. So without further ado, here are the pieces I created:
I made this piece using the pink sari silk. If I'm being honest, I'm not completely happy with how it turned out. I may try to rework it when I return home. I used some tiny pearl slivers (I think they're called hitashi?) and czech glass, and some cool vintage bits I found in my stash.
