Long & Awaited # 2
This is a second necklace order I am working on, though the focus of this piece is on the 2 beads with writing that was woodburned onto the beads by yours truly.
No easy task, the order called for a sentence in Russian. Due to the language set up and the fact that words like "is" "the" and "a" are not used in Russian, the sentence was "dumbed down" into 2 simple verbs in their _ form.
What's more is that the original design is actually a bracelet, so calculations had to be done to account for the lack of fiber and of course various other modifications to the pattern, like taking off danglies, removing extra beads and adding another decorative knot as the centerpiece...
