This blog is called
"For the Love of Beads,"
I would be remiss if I didn't talk about my favorite subject.
I've been making beads for almost 9 years now.
Those are the glass beads that I have been making for that long.
I have only recently started making polymer clay bead.
There have been issues that forced me into polymer clay because I needed the creative act of bead making to help me through some very difficult times that continue.
I have now fallen in love with polymer clay and all it's possibilities.
If you look at this pile of beads,
you'll see what I mean.
I've sorted out most of the beads.
There are birds of a feather, but of different colors and sizes.
I don't care if it's glass or clay,
I love making discs.
These discs will fare well in the jewelry that I envision with them.
Then there are focals.
Each one is unique.
(I can't seem to make two beads alike no matter how hard I try.
Glass or clay,
It doesn't matter.)
Soon, I'm hoping that I'll be able to get back to glass, but I don't know when that will be.
It doesn't matter,
