Love My Space!

The studio is getting there. Love the space and it's all mine! OK, so I have to share it with an elliptical, but the rest of the room is ALL MINE! :)

Beadwoven Images

Though I have created many beadwoven photo cuffs, this is the first time I've created a piece suitable for framing. I am really happy with how it turned out and I am now working on the next piece! I've always had a love of water and it shows not only in my photography, but also in my beadwoven images. The next one is also a water scene!

Going to Try Something a Little Different

So, I've been creating the photo cuffs for a while now and at different shows I've had people ask if I would sell the photo with the cuff. I've decided that I can do that with all the cuffs created from my own photos. (The NASA photos are property of NASA.) Then I thought, why don't I create an actual picture, sort of a mini-mosaic of a photo? So, that's my next project. I'm going to create a 3"x 5" photo piece. I've decided to start with a more simple design, in that there isn't too much detail, just color and this is the photo I'm using as my inspiration...

It's going to be a lot of work, but I'm really excited about this project! Then I'm going to have to figure out how to display it!
