Polymer Clay Long Faux Verdigris Bead with Stars and Leaf Design, a photo by Roberta Warshaw on Flickr.
I just realized it has been a while since I last posted.
I have been still dealing with my back issues. The MRI came back and I do have a herniated disc. So I have been very busy going to physical therapy, doctor appointments and such. I am trying hard to avoid the needle in the spine so I went on a round of predisone.
I know everyone does a gasp and looks at me like I am crazy but it is really helping me and if I can avoid the needle, I'll risk growing a beard and getting a red round face.
The biggest problem wasn't the pain anymore, but the weakness in the left leg. So I am climbing 280 stairs a day in my condo building to bring the leg back to where it should be. I also bought a new chair for my studio/computer desk. You cannot believe what I was sitting on before. It was an old hassock of my grandmothers that had seen better days. Sunken tush area and all. That is probably what killed my back.....
I bought a really ergonomic chair for about a gazillion dollars, but hey it is my back and like I said.....NO NEEDLES IN THE SPINE PLEASE!! The idea just freaks me out.
So anyway, I have been able to work a little in my studio. These new long beads are my latest thing. So much fun to keep coming up with new ideas. At first I thought of making pendants out of them but I am having far too much fun just making the beads!
