Hi! I thought you might like to know what’s on my own bench today. Well, for starters, my bench is not a bench - it is a desk as you can see below.
Yes, but what's on it? What I have on my desk is a partially made Kumihimo in teal peacock Czech glass, with gold Czech glass accents. I even have one end finished with a cone, and I am attaching the gold filled chain to it.
Sadly, this Kumihimo necklace has sat on my desk for over a year like this. The question is - why has this piece fallen out of favor with me? The answer is complex. I still like the teal peacock Czech beads but I’m not sure I like how they lay in this necklace. I’m also not sold on the cone I used, though I do like the chain accent. Basically, what it comes down to is this - I need to take this necklace apart and redo it, so I’ve been avoiding it like the plague!
I also have two finished Kumihimo strands which have been sitting on the other side of my desk for over a year, but I'll save the story behind those for next week...
