I'm working on that big butterfly suitcase bag. I think I'll do a little semi 3-D effect, that's why I beaded part of the back wing. But, my mind and sketch pad kept going back to the cuffs. So I snuck in another bracelet. I love this moth piece and the silver background makes it seem even more jewelry like.

Today I realized that it's time to dive in to another big project. I have really been enjoying working on some small items like stringing some necklaces and these cuff bracelets. It's relaxing to work on things that don't need much thought or intricate detail. But now I have another suitcase bag order to fill. It's for a customer in Italy (which is very cool) but she wants it by the end of May. If I start now, that will give me just enough time to get it done. So back to the design table and then on to beading butterflies. Yes another butterfly bag, what can I say, they are very popular...
