I am so thrilled… this weekend I got to visit the local art gallery that is displaying/selling some of my beadwork.
I realised the gallery doesn’t have a lot of props for displays so I have been busy this weekend trying out Decopatch… which is like a pretty papier mache. I have so far decopatched two cardboard hand thingies, one of which is for my craft fairs, and the other for the gallery. I also want to try and make some cardboard boxes look a bit better and match my hand thingies.
I have made lots of spooky things lately with skeleton cabochons and glass eyes in advance of having a stall on 29 October at WonderHillHigh Market in London Bridge. I am very excited by the prospect of reaching a younger, student based market and am hoping they “get” the weirder things I like to create.
I have also been playing with sharks teeth and making them into pretty, delicate pendants.
Thanks for reading, and if I haven’t said it before, or you haven’t noticed the logos on the bottom of my photos… I apply a Creative Commons License to my beadwork and would appreciate no copying of my pieces without my permission.
