Over the weekend, I went to a Gem Faire with a beading-nerd friend. He was running all over the place. His head was jerking left and right. I, on the other hand, felt the need to wear sunglasses because all the beads were so epileptic. We stayed there for about two hours. I got this copper leaf and a few strands of beads.
I spent my evening refocusing my eyes and battling twisted wire, an aching back, and fingers that are too big. With my friend's technical help, my first necklaces was finally born. <3
