The Importance of Play

This week in the studio has been full of fun and exciting discoveries...and who doesn't love exciting discoveries!!!  I sure do.   Let's just say I sometimes get a little...hmmmmm - over-excited perhaps??  Anyway I had good reason this week to be excited.  I finally managed to create some beads with a "grunge" look to them and boy, did that make me happy.

I started in the studio with not much of a plan in place.  I knew I wanted to create something "earthy" and that was about my only plan.

Today I sat down and documented the beads from the beginning of the week to now and I really love the progression.  I'll show you what I mean.  One idea in each lot of beads led to an idea for the next lot.
It's important to me nowdays to simply play.


  1. I love these beads !! Debbie will there be a tutorial ? Please !!!!!!

    1. oh Debra, I'm so sorry I missed your comment. I have some exciting news but can't say quite yet but hopefully I will be teaching these next year. I'm so glad you like them Debra - I really love making them, so much fun.
