Last year I formed a relationship with and began creating beads for Rachel's Cure By Design. It has been and continues to be a joy to work with these folks, and if you didn't take time to check out their beautiful designs now is as good a time as any. The quality of jewelry is top notch, but it is the end goal of raising awareness and pursuing a cure that makes my heart smile with every production bead I make.
My Focusing on Life task this week involves glass...and lots of it. It arrived on Wednesday afternoon and because I got a late start Thursday in finding my rhythm, I pulled an all nighter. It is Friday afternoon now, and after having been at it a few hours today I thought I'd take stock and see where I am numbers wise.
240 beads in, with half that amount already cleaned and strung. Is it terribly egotistical to nominate, elect, and crown myself queen of beadassery? Because I just did. Because two hundred and forty beads in a day and a half is two hundred and forty beads in a day and a half.
These were designed for a very special collaborative project RCBD has been asked to participate in, but because I'm not sure if I am at liberty to divulge I'll leave it at that. Suffice to say that I am both honored and excited to play even a small role in the project.
Art with Meaning, y'all. There's nothing better.
