Something Like Obsession

Welcome to my very own art journal/blog and the crazy world of beadweaving that I inhabit. I have no idea if anyone will actually want to dive into my thoughts on this odd and particular topic but the truth is I just need to express myself on the topic even if my ramblings go unnoticed in the void that is the internet.

If you are actually reading this than I would actually like to know what you are interested in seeing or reading about my beadwork and please understand that this blog will be an ongoing work in progress and like everything I do it is rather unplanned and spare of the moment. It might be a surprise for some of my current followers to learn that I take the same approach to my bead work.

Some times I will spend months if not years contemplating a project and other times I will have and idea and start right away even in the middle of another project. Most of my basic drawings and vague figuring outs are done after the project has already started. And to the frustration of many I still have not gotten around to producing patterns, though I have half heartedly made some attempts.

As haphazard as it all maybe I love beading and when I am not working I will spend most of my day at my desk beading and listening to audio books. To be completely honest I will also spend most of my time before or after work depending on my shift also beading. It seems that often my intensity freaks people out for some reason and it dose leave very little in the way of conversation to connect over. But that is just the price to pay for having an obsession.

Anyway I hope you enjoy studying the results of my obsessions and find some item in my beaded collection the inspires or amazes you.

Love Lou.

    1. Hi, Norbert.

      Yeh thats true everyone is busy these days. As for the name of the blog I went with DelicateByLou as that is my instagram handle, the name of my facebook page, business name ect. I just figured it was best to give everything the same name, that way its easy to remember, easy to find. Also lots of people i meet don’t know what beading is until I explain it to them and there like oh yeh i know what you mean.

      1. Easy to remember — perhaps. Do you know of any other blog names like that? … (LOL — for every top-level-domain there are ca. 1 googol [1×10^100 — that’s a 1 with 100 zeroes behind it] possible names πŸ˜› ) … Easy to find — I doubt it. A brand name like DelicateByLou is good (or at least OK) for connecting with people who already know about DelicateByLou, but it sort of sucks for connecting with the rest of the world.

        I have actually studied this stuff, and done a lot of research about it (few people think studying information science is even possible, hahaha πŸ˜‰ )

      2. Yeh that most likely true but my blog is really just an open journal, and frankly it has way more followers than i was aiming for. I focus my energy on being findable on my instagram ac.

      3. Lulz πŸ˜‰ yea, so that Facebook can advertise other beady websites to them? #URBeingWatchedAndSoIsEveryoneElseWhoUsesThoseSites41ReasonMoney


      4. As I’m the only person in Qld doing contemporary beadwork, one of the few in Australia and in the relatively small international community its not really an issue.
        And the beading community is kinda tight anyway.
