I very rarely let a bead get away from me without having a good photograph of it and here’s a good example of why. I can look at this image for a long time, it reveals everything about the bead I would not otherwise see. My hands, the glass and the camera all behaved and this is the result, which is what makes me happy : )
I will be at this cat show in Dundee on Sunday 12th May, that’s quite exciting, it’s my only booking for the year, and I can tell you that I’m anxious already. One of the reasons for giving up doing fairs is the preparation stress I have around it, not to mention getting up at what I think is way too early to drive for two hours before I even set up the table, but hey, there will be real kitties there, that’s an incentive!
The plan is to resist taking any jewellery findings whatsoever with me, otherwise I will find myself trying to make jewellery on the spot. I can’t do that anymore without being utterly shattered at the end of the day and beyond, so what I will do is ask for a deposit, and make and mail any items up within the next week, the balance can be paid through Paypal. Of course I am happy for people to buy my beads just as they are.
I was asked to make some Siamese cat beads, and very serious they are too –
