I originally planned to make a polymer clay cab to work with but none of my clay attempts came out any good so I started working on a freeform bead embroidery piece but when the powercut hit that had to go out the window - I couldn't see the needle in the felt backing and kept stabbing myself, so I put it aside while I could still feel my fingers ;)
On the upside the powercut led to a very interesting effect when I decided to bezel up some little crystal cabs instead - I miscounted seedies while I was beading and ended up with a really nice flower pattern on the back.
I ended up liking the bezelled crystal bits so I decided to carry on working with them instead and wound up with a bracelet =)
Although I'm not sure about the lilac bicone/pearl connector bits - I had no matching stash to work with (I know right - no gold shade pearls?! ... must fix that very soon).
Hopefully I'll get a chance to finish the bead embroidery piece I started, especially as I was working with a rectangular cab - a shape I've never attempted before ... for now I'm still associating it with needle stabs and a lot of cursing lol ;)
