After some major reorganizing of my work space, I finally have a table I can do beadwork on again, with enough fancy lighting so that I can work even when the sun goes down. I just need to get in the habit of doing a little beadwork each day.
For Valentine's Day I made this valentine with fresh water pearl beads. The holes were so tiny, I could almost never get a needle through them, so I found a project with no needles required. I glued them straight to the card. When I figured out who to give it to, I personalized the front with her name. She liked it so much, she wants to frame it.
