Connie and I tagged teamed my hair and retightened it to the root. Connie took me to a bead shop and I got some pink vintage lucite beads and some special vermeil beads. I will have my own goldTT.
I think the middle part is a bit hideous from a bird's eye view. The next time I will do them going straight back.
My co-workers are great. One warned me the my hair was going to fall out if I keep doing this. My African co-worker told me a secret. The African hair braiders go to school to learn how to braid - just like we go to class to learn Sisterlocks. I just thought they knew it as a tradition. Well doesn't that rental car smell like sunshine?
It's starting to lock. Not the ends are forming tight coils, instead of the loose spirals I had. Take a train to Happy Town.
I got off my manufacturing job at 1am. I came home and started on my jewelry job. I came up with three new TTs. Well one has been done before Toffee but it's redesigned and has become Toffee II. Then there is pLucite. P as in pink and Lucite as in vintage plastic.
We - Ciara, Lover, and I - are working on a name for the orange set. The bracelet unfortunately will not appear with the set. Boo. I am a self taught artist and will not read some silly manual to find out how to make bracelets. I'm using this magic stretchy string and it's like running after the Gingerbread Man. The more I knot it the more it pulls. Then I tried looping it - it came aloose too. I tried buring it and had to review my home owner's insurance. I might use wire and put a toggle on it. Making bracelets and necklaces is a bit hard. There's some rhythm to them that I haven't picked out, YET. Plus they look like Flinstone jewelry.
I am colorful.
