Finally, it was finishing time so I made dinner for me and my husband, ate dinner, tidied up and eventually got to sit down with my new shiny things to set about making something with them. I did the usual, sat and looked at them, put them alongside other beads and bits and bobs to see what complemented them. Then I had a browse through a couple of books to see if there were any techniques that would suit them better than others. I settled on a particular technique and gathered all the other bits and pieces together. That's when I realised my pretty new beads were way too big for what I had in mind.
So, to get back to my original question. Creativity - how does that work?
