My focus has been on improving my metalsmithing skills and I'm sad to say my blogging has felt the results of that. I will try to do better.
One of my goals for the second half of 2014 is to "work out of my box" two times a month. I struggle with beading. I would much rather be pounding metal. One of my other goals is to incorporate some of my past skills from the fiber industry. One of those skills is kuhimiho. I used to do this japanese weaving on a much larger scale. Lately I have seen beaded necklaces created in this style... here is my first attempt. I already see changes for the future.. but it was fun to do a dip into my past.
