2006 EGA Gentle Pursuits name tag
design by Elizabeth Graff
Fast forward to 2016 (exactly one decade later), and I participated in a beaded bracelet class that offered me the skill and experience needed to tackle the name tag.
So, after baby sister stole this bracelet (directly off my wrist I might add), I made version 2.0 to keep for my own self. It was only after I completed the second bracelet that I mustered the courage to tackle the name tag (above).
Not stopping there, I fell head over heels in love with this 'Prissy Peacock' fob and actually finished it in one day and an hour. Considering none of them have fallen to pieces (yet), I am a bit more than pleased with myself and feeling way more confident when confronted with a pile of loose beads and a beading needle. The moral of this story is Never Say Never.
