october already..

Here are a couple of things I've been making recently, more with making jewellery in mind (Christmas fairs approaching!) than being artistic and experimental..

I can't believe how quickly the time goes at the moment, busy with school, working at school, getting kids to do their homework, after school clubs, and at the same time I'm trying to stop myself becoming obsessed with trying to make a great bead for a competition!

I make one, which is maybe interesting, but I think it is technically flawed, then I make another which I'm very happy with technically but maybe a bit boring.. the more I try, the less I know what I'm actually trying to acheive! Plus, I haven't really got anyone who I can ask for their opinion, who would know what constitutes a good bead.

Maybe I should give trying a rest..

I understand what you're saying about kind of wandering around in your beadmaking. It comes together the more you practice. Hang in there.

And if you ever need opinions on beads, I've got them!

Keep trying and when you've got something, you'll know it.
ps your striped bead is especially lovely. Well executed and very marketable.
