Well, I decided that, as cute as they were, the knots that I was making with 22 gauge wire just would not be stable enough to put in a bracelet. So out they came! I am, instead, doing a variation of Byzantine with the tourmaline and 6 mm rings. It is much more stable, and I think I actually like it better.
So that's cool!
So many times I start with a plan and find that my plans change in midstream. If I try to force it, to stay with the plan, I'm usually sorry. But when I embrace my failures, and use them as a springboard to something else, it's usually a good thing.
