My Creative Space – Beading an Eclipse

I’m trying to capture a Solar Eclipse in beads today.  I’m working on my challenge entry for the Etsy Beadweavers’ June challenge, which has the theme ‘Phenomenon’. 

I had a very late idea about what my entry would be about because I was initially stumped, then I remembered a really amazing natural phenomenon I had witnessed a few years back, a total solar eclipse, and tried to remember all the little details that made up that experience. 

I needed to order some beads, which arrived today and I finally got started.  Now I’m working like mad to finish it in time …. by TOMORROW!!!!  Aaaaaargh!!!!!! :o

I’ve just finished bezelling a Swarovski rivoli with tiny beads, depicting the shadow of the moon creeping up onto the sun.  I’ve still got lots of work to do, and I’m hoping that I’ll be happy enough with the result so I can submit it for the challenge.  It’s not the first time I’ve undone my work when something’s not quite right and started again, but I really don’t have time for that with this one!

Back to work … and fingers crossed! ;)
