Bead Table Wednesday-Various Stages

I have a lot of pieces in progress on the bead table, some nearing completion and some not so near.


BTW-9/28/11
I haven't decided what to rivet onto the etched cuffs at the top yet. Most of the time when I etch the cuffs the background comes out rather matte, like the middle cuff.  I don't know how the other two cuffs got shiny.  It must be a different metal content since I etched them just like I always do. 


The twisty things are brass and copper bails.  The "queen" pendant lacks a couple of body parts but has the patina and the finish coat, as do the two spiral pendants beside her. I finished up the last batch of pearls and have some more in progress. 


Pawlie Newman is snuggled up in my lap impeding my typing. In a minute he'll tire of the typing and then he'll be on the bead table.

Leslie, I love what you have on your table. I want to etch metal so bad, but I just have not got up the nerve to do it yet.

I used to always do one piece at a time, but lately find I have bits of partially completed pieces all over my work table. At first I thought it a negative thing, but seeing others do it also, I think maybe there's a more positive spin I could give to it. I think I may be putting more thought into what I'm designing of late. (Probably all that bead soup I saw!) Your works in progress are lovely, Leslie!
