I had a creative and productive week this week!! :0) Yes, I actually got some things done! LOL!!
I guess I am just making up for lost time. I still have a few sets that I need to get sealed, but here are a few of the ones that I did get done!!
I have been playing around with colors… What colors look best with other colors… . and will this color work with this other color…. LOL!! I think that most bead artist struggle with this, and those who don’t…. well, I just envy them!
I think that even if there was a set way of deciding… well, I am not sure that I would follow it. I just get a kick out of making my own colors. I am always grabbing a little of this and some of that to see what ‘new’ color that I can somehow create. I do believe that is my most favorite part! …….and trying to get a color to ‘look’ better with the color that I just created! LOL!!
Each set of beads that I create can honestly be an OOAK. …(one of a kind) I don’t ever use the clay right out of the package. I am always adding a little of pearl, gold, silver, or translucent to it. Makes it hard for my customers who want beads made just like a certain set, because I can not create it to be the same…… similar, but not the same. But to me that is the joy of Art! :0) Hope you all have a productive weekend…. I am going to try to get the rest of those beads sealed!! and hope to create some more fun colors!!
