Thing-a-Day, Feb 12th

Today ended up being a busy day, with little time for crafting. I did get these pendants done early this morning. The top one is made with Fireline as the stringing material, and it came out better than yesterday's attempt. The bottom one is Fireline surrounded by an outer row worked in 28 ga. wire. The inner pendant was getting floppy, so it needed a wire armature to keep it's shape. I'm not entirely happy with it, but I will revisit the idea in a smaller pendant.

I just bought some thinner, 6lb test Fireline, and I'm going to try some denser beadwork now that I have thread that will (I hope) fit though the skinny needles I like for beading. More on that later this weekend or early next week.
