Each Saturday, one of the contributing editors of ABS will share with you some of the things going on in their studio. We encourage you to participate by commenting to the post. And as an incentive, we will offer a small prize each week, given to one random commenter! Sound like fun? We hope you will join in...
This week's winner is Janel! Please use the suggestion box to send your mailing address to us and Heather will send your bead out right away!
There are many projects in progress in my studio. Along with children coming and going, leaving a trail of assorted items and messes. If you hadn't figured it out my studio is always a mess and in constant state of chaos. I know where most things are located.I am working on the new Decorative Scissors Tips that were recently in Creative Knitting Magazine. They have become very popular with Knitters and Stitchers. Glazed tips can be seen on flickr and at claybuttons.com
Stacks of buttons waiting to be cleaned or glazed is a constant. To the left are stacks of the Square Graphic Button in two different sizes. Some are for orders, the extras are to build an inventory of buttons to help prep for the upcoming show season.
I am always sketching new designs. Which sometimes gets in the way when I need to make progress glazing and I have to stop to draw out what is in my head. It has to come out! It's also the over 45 syndrom...I just won't remember.
Buttons are used by everyone on a daily basis. Most people don't stop to think about what that small disk does for them. Taken a step further buttons can adorn your favorite sweater, coat or bag and is the final touch needed to make your piece look fantastic.
Do you have a favorite type or shape of button? It can be plain, ornate, handmade, or antique. Do you have a favorite design or one you would like to see? I'm always open to new designs. Sometimes new ideas are helpful.
The prize this week for one lucky commenter is one of the Square Graphic Buttons shown above. Of course, I'll glaze it first!
