I'm chuffed!

I finished the Charoite and turquoise bracelet I've been working on, and I'm very pleased with how it turned out. I tried a lot of new things while working on this one, and I really enjoyed stretching myself. For the clasp, I mitered round wire to make a square; what a cool technique! It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, and it made all the difference. Now, of course, I'm kicking myself for not trying it sooner!

As I'm sure you've realized, this year did not start out wonderfully for me. But things are getting better, and I am so happy to be able to work and try new techniques again. It's been too long.
