I got back from New York yesterday. I'm not sure driving was the best idea, but it was definitely most economical. After 13 hours though, I think Scott and I were going a bit batty. Anyway...besides visiting the fam and friends, what were the memorable moments, or dare I say highlights of the trip? A visit to the Edgar Allan Poe Cottage in the Bronx, the Tenement Museum on the lower east side, my first trip to Metalliferous and some awesome rondelles that I scored from Beads on 5th rank pretty high. On the ride home and envisioning what to create with those rondelles, I knew there'd be Bali silver cast with supporting roles. So this morning, with a memory wire core, gorgeous Bali silver noodles and spacers which I've held onto for over a year, I quite like the bracelet that emerged. There are too many designs I want to create. My first order from Humble Beads arrived while on vacation. Ordinarily, I do not like polymer beads, but these lil lovers are GORGE, and armed with my color wheel, is there such a thing as too many options?
