As you may have noticed, I haven’t been doing all that much posting this summer. I’ve been travelling quite a bit and learning as much as I can about prop work, and consequently not doing all that much work for myself.
I made the decision at the beginning of my summer to leave my bead kit in Boston, because it’s hard to travel with. Instead, I decided to try cross stitch, which I’m really enjoying. I didn’t have any issues being parted with my beads until I decided to go bead shopping on Sunday. And standing in the middle of the biggest bead store I’ve ever been in, the homesickness hit me. Hard.
There’s no cure for homesickness quite like making jewelry. Still, the first thing I’m going to do on my first evening in Boston is to conceptualize and begin on a needlessly intricate piece of seed bead work with the tiniest beads I own.
