This is the first beadcurtain strand I've made for myself in awhile; a lot of my production was going to another project for which I made primarily opaque beads. This one's whimsy is centered on a gift from my studio pal Frances, who gave me a wonky pipe to incorporate.
Some of the beads have been hanging around quite awhile, such as these equally wonky 2 inch pressed ‘lentils’ with transparent pink frit:
The shard beads are a newer series, which I quite liked:

And to finish, a quick and dirty shot of the entire thing:
This was photographed 3rd February, and, presumably completed the same day; I have no doubt Frances was the instigator for this project, and iirc, she strung two strands to my one. But one is better than none!
