As of late, I seem to be in a “paper bead shape” mood. Yikes. I hope it is useful to you in someway.
Yesterday I decided to make beads that were not such a dark color. Something that was pastel and “happy.” Unfortunately it seemed to a bad rolling day. (Is that even possible?!) No two matched and since I am using scrapbook remnants, running out of paper. Changing things up may help. Instead of going to an internet template, I went free form. Try it yourself. You could come up with a shape that is “gold.”
You can see from the picture above, that most of my beads are fairly regular in size and shape. Now take a look at Bead A. At first I didn’t see anything special. Suddenly I realized that Bead A would make a wonderful dangle earring. There is my “gold” in the experimentation. Can I make a second one? I’ll find out today.
Even if it is a little thing like paper beads, don’t be reluctant to try something new. Sometimes flying without a net is helpful to the creative process. No matter what you do, try to find your own gold.
