Are you turning up the heat on your creativity? It’s a difficult time, but there’s absolutely nothing else we can do about it, so we might as well focus on art. Plus, Christmas is coming, and mail is slow!
I told Dwyn that I wanted to do a blog post about Lampwork beads, so she brought me in a fairly hefty bag of them!!! The first two are rather safe, but I intend to change that shortly
You can find lampwork bead findings here.
I will show my small, personal collection of lampwork beads, in a future post.
I’m turning up the heat, while exploring more options!
Dwyn challenged me to do something with our large, wood beads. They’re larger than the ones I used for my Free Form Peyote Bead class, but now I need a larger mandrel. The beads are inexpensive, and with 15 in a package, there are lots to play with!
What else have I been working on? More work on my “Dancing” pandemic piece (free form peyote). I pick it up, then work on it when I’m feeling the pressure. With the current surge of cases, I really do need the distraction. I am considering adding a cluster of larger beads, but I haven’t decided how I’m going to incorporate them into the piece yet. Keep tuned!

Polymer clay beads that I made a few year ago. I re-discovered them, while doing a little sorting, so now I’m actually obligated to do something!!! Any ideas?
This is the end of my turning up the heat blog post, but definitely not the end of my creativity! After a few fairly dismal weeks, I’m ready to get back into the swing of things. What have you been up to?
Keep safe, social distance, wear a mask, and wash your hands!
