One of my dear friends (Rose) that I've mentioned before didn't make it to the fair. She ended up in the hospital with chest pains but she's OK and playing with clay and making me laugh again. If you remember the last Polymer Cafe it had a picture on the front of some beads that Maureen Carlson did. I looked at them a couple of times but didn't think it would be something I would be interested in doing. Well, when Rose got her muse on she went to town and made a bouquet full of the cutest beads using Maureen's technique. She was going to make a necklace but decided they needed to be on wire instead and they are adorable.
Some of the beads have sayings on them for inspiration.
Check out the detail on the faces. Are they cute or what? Rose, you did awesome.
After seeing these I wanted to run home and make a bunch but then I remembered that my studio is a shambles. I had an order for pendants, an order for a shawl pin and an order for earrings to match some bowling shirts. On top of that, I have been ripping through my studio and getting rid of a ton of stuff. Our clay guild is having a "Garage Sale" at our meeting this month so we can bring stuff in to sell. I wonder how much it will cost to rent a U-Haul. I'm embarrassed at how much stuff I have and don't use. I have 2 or 3 of everything. I think it's PCD. Polymer Clay Disease. I also have ILBD. It's I Love Beads Disease. Am I alone? Are there group therapy meetings for this?
Back to work, goodbye stamps, goodbye beads, goodbye 2 extra Marxit tools, I'm keeping the 5 pasta machines just in case. LOL
