I’ve been thinking about doing a limited edition set of baubles and/or a stand alone set to go with my Shapes series as a way to raise money to buy the supplies to keep making it and get pro photos taken. I figured this might be a nice way for people to feel involved in the series. My idea is to have each of the three shapes come with a card that has the name of the shape, facts about it, a photo of the original shape in the collection and a bit about the shapes series (a different part about it for each shape). I like the idea of having these as baubles because they are rather different and stand out. And I also figured I could do some baubles in Christmas colours (or customised) for people who have colour themed decorations.
I’ve already made one of the cuboctahedrons in white and I think it would look amazing on a black or blue Christmas tree.
On the shopify front it is currently up on FB and is giving me a huge headache but will hopefully be worth it in the end. Delicate By Lou is also now an officially registered Australian business and I will continue working on my store and getting my artwork out there as well, so I can eventually spend more time on my beadwork. It dose mean you might not see any new sculptures for a while though but I will be doing more baubles and things for visuals so you’ll see new ones of those.
Other than that I don’t have much else to say on the beading front but mum did take me out for a High tea at Dolphin Heads Resort yesterday for a Cancer Council Australia’s biggest morning tea and it was fab.
If your in the Mackay area than I recommend keeping an eye out for more High teas and events as apparently Dolphin Heads are planing on making them a monthly thing.
All the Best Lou.
