Opal Collar, Step 2


Opal Collar, Step 2
Originally uploaded by satyridae
Once the opals were laid out, I picked some beads that maybe worked with them and poured them out randomly. Some didn't work at all, some cozied right up to the opals and practically sewed themselves on.

After I made the preliminary choices, then I did one of my favorite things- painstakingly teased all the little piles of beads back apart and put them into their individual containers. I can contentedly imagine cleaning up a bead store after an earthquake with a pair of tweezers and a million little containers. Seriously. It may be a sickness.

I have been known to spend hours separating beads as well...a sickness, never! :)
