Aaaack! For days I’ve been playing around with my new Czech two-hole beads, trying to make a bracelet design. Except nothing is working out. Every design seems to look good in my head or on paper, and then when I start fiddling with the beads it just doesn’t look like what I’d imagined. Or it doesn’t hold together firmly. Or it looks like a design I’ve already seen. I love these beads! I want to make something with them so badly.
I guess I really only have a few choices. Keep fiddling around and see if something useful comes out of it. Move on to another project until my mind clears, and bring these beads out another day. Buy a Tila project and work on it to get my juices started.
I’ll probably end up doing all of those things. Right now I just feel desperate and frustrated.
What do you do when you want to use a particular bead or type of bead but it doesn’t want to cooperate?
