Nov 10th Etsybloggers Carnival - what I'm working on...

One of the Etsybloggers carnival topics for the week is to write about what we're currently working on. 

I've been making a lot of little things for an upcoming craft show.  But I'm really excited about something I bought from Roseworks Jewelry's BNR (Buy and Replace) Treasury last week.  It's a beautiful lampwork bead created by Graceful Creations


So, I've been waiting for it to arrive in my mailbox, checking out the photograph, and thinking about colors.  I wanted to pick up on the pinks and greens in the bead, with maybe an onyx foundation.  When it arrive today, I dug into my stash, and came up with these beads:




But I really wanted something pink, and not that many stones are pink.  Luckily, I had some extra Czech glass hearts that I bought for another project.  They would accent the focal bead perfectly!  So exciting -  you beaders know where I'm coming from!

What I usually do is spread everything out on my work table, to see how the colors look.




And it works.  Now I just have to make a design, and write my haiku.  I'll show you how it turns out! 

Thanks, ShellMitchell, for thinking up this topic!

Lovely stuff, Deb. I can't wait to see the finished product. Your process is similar to mine -- I always lay things out and put them together in my head like a puzzle.
