There comes a time in a crafter's life when they don't have enough supplies to finish a project and the supplies they initially used are no where to be found in the market. What do you do in those situations? Do you let the creative energy for the project die out while waiting and searching for the perfect beads? Or do you make due with what you have?
As a person with a tendency to completely forget things the longer they're out of sight or out of practice, I usually do the latter. Waiting is a good way for you to accidentally use up the supplies you designated for the original design. However, I'm not stupid. I know that sometimes rushing into finishing a project can cause it to suffer in quality or versatility as well. That's when you carve out a niche for your design to fit into or alter the design so that it better fits a different category.
That's what I did with this particular bracelet.
It only comes to a little over 6 inches, which perfect if you have a tiny wrist... not so much if you have a larger one. I might very well be left holding on to this particular design because I skimped on materials. We'll see.
