2012. It has a nice ring to it. Definitely easier to pronounce then 2011. I wish everyone the most hopeful and loving and most kind year! God bless!
BEADS!! I just love ’em. I usually like to use czech glass in my jewelry. I like the weight and look of the glass. But there’s a new bead in town. Rustic, textured, asymmetrical. I made my first ‘batch’ yesterday. After I baked the polymer clay, I applied some texturizer to it, to make it look and feel more like red/white clay.
I used an acrylic paint called “Norwegian Orange” to colour the bead. Norwegian Orange…what a fantastic sounding colour! During the duration of painting, the song “Norwegian Wood” by The Beatles kept playing in my head. A day later and I still can’t get the song out of my mind. Not that I’m complaining. I do love me some Beatles. Anyhow, I am happy with my results and I will be incorporating this type of bead style into upcoming designs.
