The Bead Soup I sent to my partner Dorota has arrived safely in Poland. Here is a look at what I sent.
I made all the beads in polymer clay, and the toggles from wire. At the back are some green wire beads which started out as contrasting components to the polymer beads, but I couldn’t stop making and with the addition of a clasp it became a bracelet.
In other news I have started a new group on Flickr for Polymer clay painting. This is for polymer clay being used as a painting medium (not polymer clay that has been painted). This is following the fun I had doing my Latvia painting using polymer clay. I’d like to do more paintings, and at the moment it takes a bit of looking to find other examples of artists painting with polymer clay.
My Bead Soup arrived this morning, and it’s absolutely fabulous. I can’t believe how generous my partner Dorota has been. I was worried I would wake the baby with all my excited squeaks this morning as I opened more and still more beads! Yummy! Yummy!
I am really excited to be taking part in the next Bead Soup Blog party and I have just been given my partner – Dorota Żerańska in Poland. Her blog is full of beautiful colours and intricate techniques. Here is a taste…
There are 399 participants this time so there will be three reveal dates. We are in the second wave – 11 August 2012. See you then.
