Today the city trimmed the jacaranda trees in the neighborhood.
The trees are almost done dropping their flowers, anyway.
I'm glad, because I don't want sticky sap to fall on my newly painted car!
I haven't called the painter yet, but it should be done any day, now...
I'm very nervous.
I've been dreaming about my car (but the red one) a lot lately.
Yesterday, I bought a few beads and buttons at Jo-Ann's.
At home, while I was looking for a ring shape to glue a button to,
I found two other rings.
The one on the right is a ring I didn't make, but inspires me because I think I could copy it easily.
The other one is a ring shape that came in a package of ring forms.
It is ready-made with loops for beads.
I tried to find a tutorial online, but I couldn't find the word to describe the kind of ring.
I found pictures of other kinds of wrapped wire rings that were also very inspiring...
So I just got a piece of wire and started wrapping it around the ring.
I ended up making a mess, so I cut that wire off and started over.
This time I tried to keep it neater and stuck to a cris-cross pattern.
I don't think I used the pre-made loops the way I was supposed to!
It's been a while since I tried making a ring.
Next time I'll start with a better plan.
The ring ended up crazy looking, but I really like the emerald color.
