This is what I’ve been up to. More dots, smaller beads, but not as small as small dot beads. Of course, I can’t have just a solid base of color so I had to frit ’em up. Even the larger dotted beads that look like they’re solid colored base are coated with thick layers of enamels. There is just something about straight-from-the-rod color that turns me off. Who knows though…it could be my next passion.
I can’t stop making them, and why should I? The day will come when I’m off to the next thing so I’ve learned to not say, ‘I could make these forever!’ because I know I can’t, or won’t. So, I ride the wave while it’s running.
I just love handfuls of beads and I’m convinced that more of any kind of bead is better. Alone these babies are great but look at ’em in a group…a group of anything. It takes a special mind to be able to appreciate one simple item but just about anyone can appreciate a picture of lots, don’t you think?
Oh, and did I mention that these will be up on the web site as specials this week? You’ll be the first to know if you’re on my weekly email list!
