Hello to all my followers. I can’t say that I had expected many people to be interested in my beadwork journey but there are now 56 of you and I am so grateful that you are interested in my small creations. Well anyway since my last post I have been up to a few things including pattern and coloured small baubles to use as examples and to sell later this year. Two new miniature dresses, both still a work in progress, an Orange thing sculpture to go with the Green thing, and also I’ve designed a beadwork vase which I will hopefully make this week end.
Here is one of the dresses in progress with the Green thing mostly hidden behind it. I have yet to decide to make the top seperate from the skirt or to just do a full dress. At any rate I think I will make some jewellery to go over the skirt and back of the dress like I have seen in some period dramas, as I think that will look amazing and break up the color a little but not too much. The other dress will be a modern style in green.
My vase will be black and white and will be the most patterned thing I’ve designed to date. I love minimalist design but I also need
to expand into creating more intricate and skilled designs. I was also good a concepts in high school and really need to work on brining more detailed concepts into my work and not just rely on broad ones. As much as I love my beadwork to date it needs more symbolism and a touch more humanity to make it more relatable to a larger audience.
Other than that I’ve been busy with work, parents and days for girls and playing munzee, to get me out of the house and walking about.
I’ve also been reading a lot as usual and have so far read 232 books of my 365 goal for the year. Two books ahead of schedule. And I’ve also found a game called two dots which is hard to put down.
In the next few weeks you should see the Orange thing finished and maybe another sculpture in the series started, the two dresses finished, the vase and some more work from other designs as I need to keep working through the patterns I have brought and have yet to start. I’ll also have more Christmas stuff underway, not all of it baubles.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog, I really am greatful.
