OK, now you're going to learn two, not so flattering things about me.
1. I procrastinate. Not that I haven't been working. I'm working on my second lentil bead for class, so that I can finish it and get to my final project--my next Egyptian themed major piece. I told you I may spend a lot of time in Egypt! As far as progress on my scarab necklace--first, I have to decide if I'm happy with my glass scarab. I will probably determine that after I get my oval dapping form and see how the size and shape is with the ovals on the block. I promise that I will order that today! Also--I bought a cheap rolling mill, so I'll roll my bezel for it tomorrow in class. Even if I don't use the first glass scarab on the big piece--you may find a single scarab pendant in my Copious Shop!
I have a very rudimentary drawing of my Egyptian inlay piece, although the main, inlaid piece isn't designed yet, any further than it will probably be in a pyramid shape. Maybe even dimensional. It will be flanked by two hand painted glass beads--hopefully I'll be able to make those--decorated with lotus blossoms and, finally, will be finished up with faceted blue lapis beads--which I bought some time ago.
2. The second thing I was going to confess--and I swear that I forgot what it was, until I saw this drawing--was that I have a shaky hand, which is my excuse for many shaky drawings to come!
