At least for me it is.
Most of the time the necklaces and bracelets I make have a pattern that repeats in some fashion. Once in a while I’ll do something with a random pattern. I’ll start out with the best of intentions. Whichever bead I pick up next is the one I’ll use – completely random. Then I’ll notice, maybe too many green beads are together or a black bead would really look nice in that spot and I’ll start editing and picking out the beads. Then I’ll say, no – this is supposed to be random. I’ll close my eyes and try to get back on track with the random thing. I’ll pick a bead or two. Then I start to peek. And so it goes.
So, if you see something I’ve done that looks random, it is – mostly. But you can bet there will also be some beads placed very carefully to give it that beautiful random look.
