Bead Soup

Inspired by Aldos Marcell’s Dodecaedros Siameses

Plans in the works. A lot has been going on at the moment so I’ll try to write about as much as possible. Trying to get the balance between growing my artist profile, actually making art, Christmas orders, spending time with family and friends, and working is proving to be really difficult but I am managing to get by.

So Last week I finished this toroidal polyhedron cluster of dodecahedrons inspired by Aldos Marcell’s Dodecaedros Siameses (corona) origami. Which you can find in his book Origami Sin Fronteras.

Mum recently posted this photo of a clipping of us and grandma. I never did like having my photo taken lol. But as you can see craft has been a part of my life for a very long time, I’ve tried a lot of different crafts over the years but as you know it was beading that I fell in love with. Mum recently told me I went the beading class that started it all when I was twelve. So it took me a few years to really get into it around when I was twenty two.

Recently I’ve been experimenting more using different materials and trying new things. I like how the netting turned out in this and will do something with it.

I might also be changing from Shopify as it seems rather expensive and is not doing much. I’m looking into square but we shall see.

Also on the experimenting front I’ve ordered a batch of post cards with the Golden Dodecahedron on the front to sell, as I love buying art postcards and

hope that other people do as well.
The other reason why I have ordered some is that I am going to give Kickstarter ago and I want to have postcard packs as a reward, and also maybe some personalised hand written cards as well.

I’ll keep you updated with how that is going at any rate.

So this funky dress has been on my desk for a while now and it is not done, done but done for now. I have a few ideas for it but am working on other things at the moment.

Millie being needy.


Millie has been rather naughty lately, picking on Tabby but she still likes to cuddle up some times and get scratches. Mind you I have several scratches on my legs from her trying to climb onto my lap, and falling off, but digging her claws in to hold on. Eh she is cute though.

Mum and I have been going out for coffee as usual, and Joan has been dragged along several times as well. Saturday was the first time in a while both Joan and I were at days for girls which was nice.

Mum and I also went to this weeks AWC class at Snitty in a Box and made small sugar skulls. This crazy skull is mine and it will be interesting to see how it turns out after being in the kiln.
This Saturady I’ll hopefully being going up to the Eungella craft faire with my aunt and cousin, as it looks interesting. I’ll also be getting my second covid shot on Friday.

Oh mum, Joan and I went up to Eungella last Friday to visit Cedar Gallery which was fantastic

as they have 25 artists, all with unique styles. We learnt all about the artists and how they make their art and had alcohol and cheese at the end. I brought some earrings for my cousin and Joan brought a lovely coffee table. I really wish I had enough room and money to buy some of their plinths, they are amazing and Owen carved them himself along with the other wood work.

Other than that I’ve been working on a new cube as I wish to have three in my exhibition. This one will be bigger than the last as it is three cubes each way, where the other orange one was just two. And this time I will be going with a dark base colour with a light trim colour which will be different.

well I had better get moving as I still have a few things to do before work. Lou
