(title from here: https://youtu.be/jOnPqCjKuac)

I currently share an office with two other artistic-crafty biologists. When we all figured this out, and I commented on it to [personal profile] scrottie, his response was, "You're going to start holding crafternoons again."

And yeah, he called it. Well, kinda. What actually happened was the fashion maven invited us to a twice-monthly Bead Night held at a bead shop. So I can at least claim, "It wasn't me, I swear!", heh.

...on the other hand, I did convince both of them to sign up for ceramics classes. It didn't take any arm-twisting at all. I just told them about the classes and where to sign up. We're going to go pick up clay and tools tomorrow, and then classes will start up in 2 weeks. Oh, and the fashion maven outdid me there, and also signed up for a jewelry-making class. I'm telling you, the parks and rec program in Tempe is phenomenal.

Anyway, Bead Night brought back so many wonderful childhood memories. When I was somewhere around middle-school age, I got obsessed with some cute necklaces in a mail-order catalogue. Like the awesome mom that she is, my mother didn't just give me one of the pretty necklaces - she gave me necklace-making lessons at a local bead shop, and then I made a set of my own fantastic necklaces instead.

I don't really want to get back into jewelery-making. I don't wear it enough to justify it. However, over time I've accumulated a stack of various small jewelry-related problems or projects - earrings I can't wear for various reasons, a necklace missing a small but obvious element, an ant pendant waiting to be turned into a necklace. Enough to justify a foray.

So that all made for a pleasant evening of diversions, and now more of my jewelry is wearable again, should I find occasion to wear it.
