Week 12: Back to Beads

polymer clay bead sample

This week was back to being about beads since there were orders and beady things to do. I snapped a picture of a sample of what went by the bead table this week – African violets, crocus, little strawberries, seashells and gingko leaves. It’s a bit of a variety but that makes the job more fun.

garden bracelet

A customer wandered into the studio earlier in the week and asked for a custom bracelet which I whipped up. The garden bracelets are fun because they use my flowers and charms but also because they let me sift through my pile of random stones, glass and metal bits. I collect cute beads and sparkly bit, often without a real plan for using them, so it’s nice to see them find a home!
