More coil bracelets
Because I can't have just one or two, there are far too many color combos that I must try!
I beaded up one in cobalt (Japanese size 15/0) and a lighter blue bead (Japanese size 15/0) with sliver Delica's down the middle. Funny thing, the cobalt blue looks purple until you hold it up to the light and then it is really the most brilliant blue. Another one so dainty and feels to good on.
I HAD to have at least one in black. This one used sized 15/0 beads as well, in black opaque and what looks like black lined topaz AB (they are not labeled) and the spine down the middle is a matte black Delica. The true color on this one was far too difficult for me to capture with my camera.
It feels a little differently than the blue - a bit stiffer, but still nice.
Leaves of Grass
This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
