Not As Random as It Seems

I'm always left with odd beads after projects so every now and then I do what is the jewelry equivalent to a crazy quilt. There is an art to even "crazy" projects so it's not mindless stringing, but there is something freeing about not having a pattern or any sort of expectation about what something will look like when it's finished. I did just a couple of these in August and they sold before I even listed them on Etsy. I finally finished the rest of the batch and listed them today. Here they are- I'll admit, they don't look amazing in photographs, but they really pop in person. I wore the last one this weekend and everywhere I went people complimented it.


These necklaces always make me draw the comparison to life and how random things often seem. I think God is both the maker and the string that makes all the things that happen in our lives become something more than just circumstances and happenstance.

Weaving, threading, knotting and finishing: a metaphor for life! Lovely pieces!
