I tend to flit between projects, so nothing forms a series of work. While I was having fun making my spectrum beads, it occurred to me to divide the year up into 7 and focus on each colour of the rainbow in turn.
It was a vague idea until Katie Oskin from Kater’s Acres invited me to join her 2015 Polymer Clay Challenge. This helped me focus on what I wanted to make featuring the colours…
As I have been populating my new Etsy store with jewellery components, I keep thinking it would be good to have beads that co-ordinate with each other to form sets. So I figure if I spend each week making beads or components featuring one main colour they should co-ordinate with each other at the end of the block.
So my plan is to cycle each week between focals, toggles and accent beads with a review and colour change every 7.4 weeks (a year divided into 7).
- Pendant, cabochon or large bead (1″ or larger).
- Toggle, button or other closure method.
- Spacer beads or accent beads up to 1″ diameter.
I have also signed up for the Polymer Clay Adventure Virtual Retreat so I hope I find the time to do it all :).
