of overwhelming incompleteness. it just did't feel done. don't get me wrong... i am renowned for the dullness of my mostly-black wardrobe, but i do love bold accessories. this thing just... well... it has all the excitement of hand-washing gym socks.
so, i sorted through my stash, and added a few random bits and bobs in an effort to create a more controlled-disorder effect.
not bad, eh?
i love the twisty metal bits and the crystal dangling from the chain. this project ranks somewhere in the range of advanced-beginner. it is, after all, a simple charm bracelet... but there is so much beauty in simplicity.
oh... and i had a handful of wired beads left over...
so i wrapped them onto a a few links, added ear hooks, et voilà... earrings!!! with a bracelet that busy, it's best to keep the earrings simple, or just opt for a pair of hoops instead.
after all the hard work taking pictures of my own wrist, i unwound with a treat from the little pâtisserie up the street that claims to make the world's best donuts. the pillowy, old-fashioned dough is filled with a vanilla pastry cream that is absolutely superb. the chocolate donut disappeared mysteriously while i was searching for the camera. hey... no one's ever accused me of having either patience or self-control. not sure if i'm ready to uphold the advertised claim of world's best... but that is one absurdly good donut.
