Use the Muse IV Sneak Peak

It's taken me until the last minute, but I've just completed by submission for Use the Muse IV which is sponsored by Art Beads.   I really liked the Muse this time around and decided to continue to play with asymmetrical design.  Although it uses many elements of designs that I've done in the past, it is by far the most different thing I've done and I'm pleased with how it has turned out.  The mostly neutral colored kit was fun to branch out from although I kept in a lot of the neutral browns because I could use something in those colors. Several components from the kit are things I'd like to use in the future.

A What Not To Do

Today I learned why it is perhaps not a good idea to use your teeth to pull a needle through a tough seed bead.  In addition to the occasional broken seed bead, you can also break the needle. Having that little tip in your mouth is most assuredly not a good idea.

I'll stick to using pliers from now on.
