But that is changing, and I have a couple of teaser pictures for you.
Arthritus in my hand, makes beading with a needle and thread difficult, so I am sad to say that my beloved beads have sat alone for the past year or more it seems.
Now, I have begun to play with assemblage art, I collected STUFF for a long, long time. I even had a nice studio, out in the back of an old trailer. That was the problem I think, it was in the back and the only window looked out over the neighbours messy yard. I really felt shut away from everything, sometimes that is a good thing but not always, a moot point anyhow because the trailer went away, and I had to move my supplies. That turned out to be a good thing! I have a new studio, which looks out on my back yard, and it's much easier to warm, two good reasons to be happy, and I am.
Assemblage, oh my the possibilities are endless ~ polymer clay, paper clay, found objects, this, that, cut, glue, paint, stick, drill, screw, nail, sand ~ I am sure you know what I mean. My DHJoe has made sure I have all the tools and then some, and it is so much fun.
Of course before I knew it, some beads began to sneak into my art piece in progress, I have to say I do love tacky glue...
The first picture show some of my wood burning skills, and yes I'm playing with wire..
This one you can see some blue beads, yellow and red, but what are they doing? That is not a head..
I'm from New Zealand & I now live in the hills behind the beautiful Gold Coast in south eastern Queensland, Australia. I learnt to use a needle & thread at young age, so beading was a natural progression of that. I love to bead & I am a self confessed Bead Addict, for which there is no cure, nor do I want one if it ever becomes available. Recently I have taken up photography & have no idea where this will take me but I'm up for the journey
