Apart from completing my commissioned work, I also made 2 new items that I've listed in my Etsy and Artfire shops. A cord bracelet and a pair of earrings. Both feature beads I bought in Tokyo in 2007. I've been hoarding them ever since and finally got round to using them. I have to admit that I'm a little sad at the thought of not being able to stare and drool over them anymore. I hope both items find good homes.
