I really missed these. So many wednesday's seem to have gone by, with no time or interesting things going on.
Well- this week, I am cleaning out my studio. I can't work in there. It's out of control. I need to make beads for Berks, I need to do some custom orders. Here is a picture of my desk, only AFTER an hour or so of cleaning. I somehow gather little bowls and plates and such after each thing I make, and now I have to sort beads, and wires and trash. That little 10x10 spot is not gonna cut it as a work surface.
And then there are piles on the floor of papers and such that need to find a home or be recycled. But I did get a path cleared to walk.
So I managed to make some beads this week, only because my polymer "studio" is portable and can be done at the kitchen table. I had a night alone over the weekend and popped on a movie and made beads. (Watched Eat, Pray, Love.........again!)
These were born that night!
Combined Metal elements with the polymer, I am in love! I like the new bails too, kinda folk artsy, I call them, Hanging Hearts.
And here they are painted. I still have half in mid-paint, because the studio needs to get done TODAY! I need to catch up on orders and production for the Bead Show.
I did HAVE to do this though (see below) A practice set up for the bead show. I need to figure out some lighting, and I had to visualize the space I need to fill with beads. As you can see, I barely have any right now, and need to get crankin'!
I am also wating for my banner to arrive so I can hang it on the front. I am pretty excited to see it, I think it will POP!
So those of you who gave advice on my set up, what do you think? How is this? I tried to spread out the trays, give some room to set down your things, ect.............. I will be adding a couple trays, but there is plenty of room.
I am also sure it will change 1000 times before the show. But at least now I know how much to make.
So, happy Bead Table Wednesday! What's on your bead table????
