Welcome to my blog! I’m a seed beader, interested in the visual arts in general — I will be writing some about what I do, and some about what I see and learn. I have a website, if you’d like to see a few examples of my work that I’ve done since 2002. I completely redid my website about a week ago, and that seemed a perfect time to start a blog as well.
I made a coworker very happy today. She had admired a pair of my earrings, and she commissioned me to make a pair for her. I designed these, and my instructions were in the December 2007 Bead & Button. She chose the color of the Swarovski open square that she wanted, and then chose the Delica from the colors I brought in for her to see. This is how I brought them to work today:
I temporarily put gold findings on one, and silver on the other. I agreed with her that gold was better, and finished them at lunch. She wore them the rest of the day….
(In case you’re curious, that’s DB604 – perfect match to Sahara Swarovski. And, to those of you who have mastered photographing Swarovski, you continue to have my respect!)
Thanks for coming!
