Crafty Resolutions - Eighth Month Update

Okay, I meant to do this in June, at the 6th Month mark,but I was busy (buried under projects). So here's an update a few months later.


Beaded Desert's Beading/Jewelry Making Resolutions for 2008


  • Experiment with PMC and make one small item [I'VE MADE THREE SMALL CHARMS SO FAR, AND BOUGHT A WHOLE BUNCH OF SUPPLIES RECENTLY TO PLAY MORE]
  • Spiral rope using one of those great lampwork focal beads I bought off Etsy
  • Experiment with wire rings [SEE PREVIOUS POST WITH THE FOUR RINGS!]
  • Learn one complex beading stitch (tubular peyote, herringbone, weaves, etc)
  • Complete one piece using the stitch above
  • Complete one bead crochet piece (now that I know how to do this)
  • Experiment with resin [DONE! I PLAYED WITH SETTING SOME BUTTONS. NO FINISHED PIECES YET, BUT I HAVE TO WAIT FOR COOLER WEATHER NOW, TOO HOT TO BE OUTSIDE WORKING WITH TOXIC MATERIALS]
  • Experiment more with metals (cold connections/soldering, actually finishing something...)
  • Buy more delicas!! [UM, YEAH, LIKE THAT WAS A HARD ONE]
  • Experiment more with wire pieces [DONE, BUT THERE WILL BE MORE]
  • Get a total of 10 pieces listed on my Etsy site by the end of the year [I HAVE FIVE PIECES WAITING IN THE WINGS, JUST NEED TO DO SOME FINISHING AND THEN I CAN LIST THEM!! THEY'LL BE A LITTLE SERIES OF PENDANTS]
  • Work on a holiday line beginning in August [HMMM, ITS AUGUST, MAYBE I SHOULD GET ON THIS ONE....]

That wraps things up for this post (wow, three posts in one day, I'm going for a record here). Thanks for reading and happy beading!
