You see, I usually only have a general idea of what I want the outcome to look like when I start a piece. I sort through my stash and pull out all the beads that might potentially work for my project. At that point I've got piles of beads all over the place. Then I narrow things down and set to work. But along the way, I usually decide that a bead I thought would look good, just doesn't fit with the design. So then I rummage through the stash again, until I find something else that looks better in the overall design. That method, if you want to call it that, works well for me at home. But it is dependent on having a huge stash to rummage through and that just wasn't going to work here.
So what did I pack?
