Back to the Drawing Board

As you may recall, in last Friday's blog entry, I told you about the birds nest rings I had been making. On Saturday, I wore one of them out to lunch with my mom and my sister and then did a little shopping. As I was leaving the second store, I glanced down at my hand and realized that the focal bead was missing from the ring! All that was left was the bird's nest part (which did still look very nice on its own, I thought), the bead had snapped very cleanly off at each end of the wire that had been holding it attached to the body of the ring, I had to look very closely to even see where the breaks in the wire were.

I had thought I had lost the bead itself in a store or on the sidewalk somewhere and would never see it again but luckily, I found it at the bottom of my shopping bag when I got home.

So it is back to the drawing board for me, to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it. It could be that I need to pass through the bead more than once, in order for the wire to successfully support the weight of the glass bead. It's also possible that I might have snagged the bead on something as I shopping and pulled it off without realizing.
I must also ask Jen and Stephanie if they have had similar problems with their creations.
Clearly, more research is required...
