GROPING IN THE DARK?

Finally I am finding my way back to my torch; ok, folks, let's not take this literally, I am not fumbling in the dark to find my torch. As after any event, I am not only exhausted but burned out when I come home and I simply can't bear the thought of making another bead. Oh, I do admit, I am not keen to make the same designs as when preparing for the event. The need to come up with something new and exciting is as daunting as crossing the huge Pacific or Atlantic Ocean with your small wooden row-boat in order to reach home. Perhaps, this need for 'something new' is the kill-joy factor. Perhaps, no one except myself expect me to come up with new designs. Perhaps, I set goals which are not necessary. Perhaps, I am being complicated. Perhaps, it is better to do what I like doing, so what if they are similar designs? Perhaps, it is best to put all these mind-bogging questions in the trash and forget it. Let's start afresh and be happy as clams!

Some new beads to share with you:


A ROMANTIC BOLERO
round beads in watermelon and transparent red with turquoise motifs
comes with transparent aqua/watermelon/transparent red disc spacer beads

EVIDENTLY STAR-STRUCK
round beads with black motifs and light blue dots
accompanied with spacer beads

STARS OUT IN THE SUMMER SKY

A SILENT CHOICE
this is a set where it's about positive and negative
something I learned during my days in art school
