It feels like a lifetime since I last posted something.... but I've been busy beading the Sherry Serafini's "A Mermaid's Attire".... it's so beautiful... but a LOT of work! :-) am looking forward to finishing it, hopefully tomorrow or the next day!!!.... I'm looking forward to starting a new original piece inspired by all that I have learnt from making this beautiful Serafini piece, but NOT following instructions - as much as I have enjoyed making this unbelievably gorgeous necklace, and as much as I would definitely buy a pattern again, especially another Sherry Serafini, I really don't like following instructions!!! I don't mind the first half... but having to repeat the same thing for the second half (left & right) is really mind-numbing to me!!! I just want to get on with applying all I learnt to my own designs!!! :-) but I promised myself I would finish it before starting anything else because it deserves to be finished - it's just SO beautiful - and as I will probably never own one of her beautiful original pieces, this is as close as I'll get to ever wearing one of her fabulous pieces, so I must finish it... and I know if I move on to something else now, I will never get back to it and it will lie in my "must-get-to-it-one-day-and-finish-this-piece box" together with all the other pieces I started and moved on to other work before finishing them! :-) they rarely see the light of day... only when a new one gets added to the box :-)
