Welcome to Studio Saturday! Each week one of our contributors gives you a sneak peek into their studio, creative process or inspirations. We ask a related question of our readers and hope you'll leave comments! As an incentive we offer a free prize each week to bribe you to use that keyboard. The following week we choose a random winner.
Last weeks winner is s_baghaii. Congratulations! You have won one of Creative Impressions in Clay new toggle buttons from the studio of Tari Sasser. Send Tari an e-mail with your address and she will get it right out to you.
Welcome to the Humblebeads Studio! What have I been up to lately? I have been making beads, beadmaking, creating beads, working on beads and did I mention that I've been making beads? The last few weeks have been a flurry of marathon beadmaking sessions. My husband is now afraid to enter my studio, he knows I'll put him to work rolling beads.
I did two trunk shows last month, one with Ornamentea and one at Galena Beads with the Vintaj girls. One thing I did for each of these stores was to create limited edition beads that I thought would work well with their style. For Ornamentea I worked on vintage inspired floral patterns that would fit their altered art/mixed media vibe. For Vintaj, I sent fall themed beads and new Van Gogh shapes. I think my Van Gogh beads look wonderful with the warm glow of the Vintaj brass.
