Yeah, well dream on ;-) The usual drivel will have to do, it's been long enough since my last post.
I have been busy though. I've taken the concept of the Psuedoshard a step further, making thin image trans drop charm sort of things with the usual distressed image transfer stuff on the front. I used some of my black and white images on some of them, which worked quite nicely I thought. I always think they look African for some reason. To do with my mental image of what African looks like of course, and perhaps not all that close to what something African actually looks like, but there is such a thing as a national characteristic that comes through in work from a particular place. It's a vague concept, and involves that other vague concept, 'feel' as well as direct visual clues, but I maintain it does exist.
In my head anyway.
Of course I could stop making small beads, but that would be a shame.
I have made some more organic form spike things too. They are fun to make and the last lot sold very quickly. We shall have to see how these do.
Other than that I made some big hollow beads by pre-baking two halves and sticking them together.
And some bi-colour bicone beads, which I quite like. haven't listed them yet, but will do so over the next week.
I think I need to make some more eccentric style stuff, maybe some large focals or something, as I have been in component making mode for a while and need a change, just for a while.
Still enjoying the process, so all good there.
