I’m finally happier with this little piece. Here is a post on some of the re-workings that have happened with this piece.
That post shows me ripping out a beaded bezel that was quite time consuming to create. I’ve since created and ripped out two more beaded bezels with different bead colors. Sometimes I’m happy to just toss a piece and start over or simply call it a learning experience. Sometimes, for some unknown reason, I’m happy to work and re-work a piece until it relaxes into that “aaaaaaah – that’s it” moment.
