Started B-School, Worked on Beadsoup

Hello All,

I've been away from my beading for the past 2 weeks because I enrolled in Marie Forleo's B-School.  It's an intensive 8 week course for online entrepreneurs.  I've learned so much already that I highly recommend it to everyone who wants to run a successful online business.  Even if you don't want to take the course right now, Marie Forleo offers free tips and inspiring interviews.  She also has a youtube channel called Marie TV.

I did manage to fit in a little beading time last night. :)  I'm interested in creating slave bracelets, also known as hath panja and hand flowers.  Because the name slave bracelet can be off putting I wanted to know more about the term.  I learned that the name slave bracelet has nothing to do with slaves or slavery. A slave bracelet is called that because the bracelet is connected to a ring with a chain.  They are also called hand flowers or hath panja.  I googled some images and watched some tutorials on youtube.  Then I gave it a try myself.  Hath panja (the term I prefer because it sounds so exotic) can be simple or very elaborate.  My first effort is very simple.

hath panja
I'm not at all sure I will keep it like this.  I might embellish it more or even take it apart.  (I have to laugh at this picture.  The only place I could get a good picture last night was over the kitchen sink, so of course I wanted to change the background.  My photoshop skills need work!)

I hope you all do something creative that makes you happy.
