    It's my day off, should be cleaning the house, doing laundry maybe weed a bit in the garden...but I am sorting pearls and drinking espresso. Woke up this morning with the imageof the 100inch rope Sarah from Kojima created years ago in the 100 inch rope challenge from 2009. I remember wanting to make something like that when I first read the tread in 2014, thats when I became a member. The things that pops into my head! That year I read a lot of older treads. I didn't became an active member until 2018 when I just had to share my blue tahitian studs with someone other than not-husband... This morning I have been sorting through my leftover pearls, strands I don't use and did some cutting apart (strand sacrifice watched over by woodoo priest kitten..) this is the first layout, the colors don't show up like they should, but I might rearranged them.

    I knotted my rope with Pattyes Beaders secret in ivory. It's know 36 inches long, it turned out rather fun.

    #same lol. But what is life if not being constantly distracted by pearls, right?

    This turned out beautifully! I especially love the nuggest-shaped ones!

    Thank you lary007 and Marianne. lary007, that would be the white bluish freshwater keshis, the ones that smelled badly (but not anymore).

    I would say you have been cleaning house...maybe a pearly house, but cleaning and rearranging just the same!
    Love the restyle!

    Well done on the redo! It's great when you can make your own things, you are never tied to one style.

    Thank you JerseyPearl and Katbran. Yes it's really great to be able to just rearrange things at a whim and then remake it if I want to. Saves money to when I don't have to ask someone else to remake it.
