Each day the beads talk to me:
I love this is an artisan bracelet with art beads from some of my favorite designers including, Seashore Glass, Clayworks, Miss Fickle Media and Gaea. It is my favorite subject, the beach!!!
It was sold last night and I wanted to show it one more time for memories.
What makes a design come together in my little world? I have many types of storage for my vast collection of beads and components. I have one large tray of little containers of very special projects to create on my credenza. Many of my art beads are here.
This little collection was gathered from that tray. I choose colors and textures and interesting parts and pieces and the beads talk to me. I never know when I sit down to work exactly what will come of my chosen collection. I might pick up an bead and decide to wire wrap it. And another grouping might be better strung. I have some very cool little things to break up the colors and add interest and an element of surprise.
In this case, this bracelet was listed like the 2nd picture. Perfection in my mind. Then I received a request to add a little bit to the length. This is usually done by adding a little extra chain or a jump ring and I just go ahead and do it and send it out to the happy recipient.
