I 've had a long absence from bead table Wednesday, but I love to look every week. I'm still working my way through the Bead Soup Blog Party. I am almost two thirds of the way through...so many interesting components and solutions to be seen. I know it will take me a while longer as I'm doing about 10 a day - pairs, that is!
Here's what's going on my table, a whole lot of photography! I've given up on the natural light setup except in desperate circumstances and have decided to do a little permanent photography 'cave' with these tiles. I can use light colored backdrops in the 'cave' when I get sick of the dark, but for now, it's working and it's quick and easy...I can also use a custom light reading on the camera that reads the contrast fairly well and is, of course, not as fickle as sunlight (or lack thereof).
There in my cave are the recently finished sets and singles to be listed on Etsy, Zibbet etc. This has been a fairly productive week and I am pleased to get stuff moving along. I love to look at the colours all together and notice that this week, red and pink with blue featured prominently. Some stuff has been sitting around while I thought about it, some for quite a while.
Some flat connectors which have been popular....
More pod sets, I'm still loving the exploration of surface...
Will soon vary the forms a little...
Some sculptural 3 dimensional pods - not every one's cup of tea, but fun to look at!
And rough, but also moving along, is my prototype toggle, very rough and it hasn't been colored yet, but I'm going to finish and use it myself to see how it functions - the first shot is together, obviously ,and the second shows the independent bits.
Have some more ideas along this line - I guess I'll see what happens!
