It’s a little busy and chaotic in Tooaquarius land right at the moment. Prepping for the Fraser Valley Bead Show has the whole studio in full swing. I have a little shot of one little corner of my chaos with this pile:
These guys are a combination of disc flowers that need matching up into sets and bases for focal beads and earring beads that need finishing up.
There are an awful lot of piles like this around here right now. You should see what others have on their bead tables in the Bead Table Wednesday group!
I’ll start with the sane part, the escapee from my the asylum that is my bead table the last few weeks. I made a little forget-me-not flower, as several types of beads (this one made it to my shop), and paired them with lapis, sodalite and jasper beads that echoed the colours of the flower. The whole works are joined together with gunmetal wire.
The chaos part of the table isn’t pretty – this is what beads in the middle of getting holed look like. Little plastic shreds EVERYWHERE.
A few inches over from the mess are the beads that have been drilled already. And the Dremel tool I use to do the drilling. I figure there’s 14 or 1500 flowers there plus all the other chaos. The table is going to get scraped off soon, again.
Have a bead table? Show us! Post pics to the Flickr group.
