Maybe, maybe not

It's been a while since I last posted! It's been a while since I last created! Here are 3 things I have made in the last two weeks. I do still have my eye on Fimo and on creating things. I still have so many canes and beads and ideas so perhaps this is a never ending story!

At the moment I am pondering whether I should pick up my bead business again. It just takes so much time and energy and I am not sure if I want to spend these two things for this at the moment. We'll see. I'll keep you posted!

Brown Glitter Beads

Every now and then I pick up my clay and create. This was a customer order. It's hot out, so it's not really that easy to sit down with the clay. And I'm also working on an other hobby and having this and that on my I'm still creating non-the-less!

It's been a while, again! After weeks of having these beads lie on my table, un-sanded and buffed, I finally finished them! I'm glad they are done and that I can move on to a new projekt. Life's been giving me lot's to do and so I am busy in many different ways. Thanks to all the support of my customers I have decided to continue making beads, even though it might take a bit longer then before to finish a projekt. I do miss working with my clay when I don't use it for a while. It's always nice to be creative!

It's time to create!

The month of March has been quiet for me. I haven't been blogging much nor creating much either. I've been putting my energies into different parts in my life but not into Art and now I have come to a point where I must say: I miss it! I miss creating something with my hands, I miss having ideas and making them real, I miss making other people happy with my beads! So, after almost quitting my little business, I'm back! I want to start creating again!

Here some eye-candy!

Life is full of Surprises

It's been pretty quiet around here, I know. My life hast gone through chaos and many changes, but I am finally seeing the Sun again.
I'm flying away for 4 days and after that I will have a look at what I want to do next with my beads. But no worries, I'm not giving up.
I wish you all, a great easter time!

A strange inspiration

I was sitting on my bed last week and watched my son watch t.v. He sat there very peacefully and I enjoyed having the time to just sit with him. Suddenly his socks caught my attention! He wore gray socks which had one stripe of red in them. I didn't think much of it until the thought came to me "hey...that's a great design for a bead!". *smile* So that's what I did. I created a line of beads which had one stripe of colour in them.

It is a VERY simple design but that is exactly what I like about it. Simpel yet effective. Great for any Necklace or the like!

It was worth it

With Pain in my wrist I decided to finish my project from two weeks! I don't like things to be unfinished. So here they are, my newest beads, lentils. I really like them and they were fun to make. Off to new endevours...;-)

On to new things

I created some new beads with a Kaleidoscope Cane. I'm not a big fan of them because I know I didn't give my best. I feel very impatient with my self at the moment because I get bored so fast with a "theme" and move on to the next very quickly before getting to know a technique properly. Already I lost interest in Kaleidscopes und have a new idea in my head. Something completely different. *grinning*

But it's not that bad. I'm not beating my self up over it. I mean, I'm still a baby when it comes to polymer clay and have so much to learn. I guess that's why I'm jumping from one thing to the next so fast.

I am totally exhausted and wishing for Holidays, for Sun and Sand, for time-out! Good thing that as of tomorrow I finally have 6 days off work!

My latest Projects include trying out Kaleidoscope canes. Unfortunatley I forgot to take pictures of the canes and used them all up for the beads (they were small canes). I really liked working on the kaleidoscope patterns and I am going to venture into this a bit more, for sure. I already have new material to use on my clay-table and as soon as I have some new energy, that is where you'll find me! :-)

I especially like using black+white with the red. I already have new ideas to use the black+white in combination with other colours.

On the weekend I also started working on some flower lentil beads. I am trying to use up some old canes to make space for new ones so I decided to try these patterns. Half of them still need sanding, but because both of my wrists hurt again from working so much (outside of home) I am forced to take a break for a bit. That kinda sucks. But here's a sneak peak of how the finished ones look!

Little bit of Glam

I bought my first two Embossing Powders at the Christmasmarket and experimented with it in the last couple of weeks. I really like the results, they look glamorous. Surely I will use embossing powder more often in the Future. I hope to get my hands on some more colours very soon!

Foil Beads

It was a lot of fun making these beads. It was a bit easier on the wrist because they didn't need so much sanding, thank goodness! I liked playing with the colours and seeing the end product all shiny and sparkling. I'm really happy with the results.
