Thanks! See you there!
Holy crap. If you want to be inspired by color, texture and design. Go to the site of Amy E. Fraser and click around the galleries. Dangity dang dang. No writing today…that should keep you busy!
Ok, here goes…my other blog where my not-so-bead-related stuff is. Get it now because I won’t be advertising it much, if at all. Just thought I’d give y’all a peek.
Take it with a grain of salt!
…kind of. Here, in my particularly packed-with-lotsa-colorful-stuff-for-making-beads work station you see something hanging from my ventilation hood from bent open paper clips. It looks like a glorious wad of hanging color. If you look more closely toward the back you can see a string of Fran Lizardi’s beads hanging there too…they’re so cool! Anyway, what are those things and why are they there?
I’m glad you asked. No, they’re not the start of a beaded curtain. They’re long hat pins that I put beads on and then clamped with a bead stoppers and then hung them up. They are usually beads that I made the day or days before and I need them nearby for reference so I can see what I want to do again and what didn’t work. Check out the close-up:
You might recognize some of your beads on there and lots of them that have not seen light outside the studio. The thing is, even if I don’t think they’re appealing enough to sell, like I said before, a lot of anything looks good so I’m starting my beaded curtain. Luckily my hoods are strong and sturdy and can hold a lot of weight!
