I have been trying to design a bracelet for the last two weeks and it's not going well.
I chose the colours and arranged some beads on my tatty old bead board. Must get round to buying a new one of those.
I chose the chain I wanted to use and rearranged the beads several times, taking some away and then putting them back again.
I changed my mind about the chain at least twice. I even got as far as making the toggle clasp!
Well, you can forget all that. It's not going to happen. I had envisaged a classic charm bracelet with garnet, amethyst, angelite and pink rubies clustered along its length and hanging down on either side of the silver hand made toggle clasp. But this bracelet will not stay still! It keeps changing shape in my head. The latest, barely formed vision is a bit asymmetrical and doesn't involve a toggle at all. The only thing remaining constant is the colours. It might not even turn out to be a bracelet by the time I've finished.
I must now wait until after the 18th, when my Muse may have returned from her holidays, refreshed and ready to go. Where has my Muse taken herself off to, do you think? Somewhere warm, I hope. The planet Mercury is not the only thing in retrograde round here. The stuff in my patio thermometer is also flowing in the wrong direction. It's a bit chilly here!
