I finally am getting to play with the beads, rather than counting them for a while.
I joined the Use the Muse II contest and now have a wonderful set of beads to play with! I can’t show you the Muse yet, but it’s beautiful, and very inspiring. It will be challenging to come up with a piece worthy of it.
Alas, this contest is closed now, but there will be a Use the Muse III contest coming up soon. So save your pennies and join the fun!
