...whoever guessed somewhere between straightening out the tube and learning to live with it. It isn't perfect, but it's close enough for me!
And now it's time to decide what I'm going to do with it. I played around with some pearls, thinking that a multi-strand bracelet would balance the heavy bead, but it didn't work. The colors are good, but the balance just isn't there. I could do a pearl and rosary chain, but eh, that's been done. It's just sort of dull.
Nothing is grabbing me, shaking me up, and insisting to be done. So I guess I'll just have to wait.
