When I discover a new design - or at least to me, it's new but perhaps it already exists somewhere in another part of the world that I have not had the opportunity to witness - I work at the idea till it oozes out of every tiny pore and I can probably work at it blindfolded. This is the time where I begin to move on to greener pastures and this can be a tricky situation. Sometimes, this phase takes a longer journey and time than you would like. More often than not, the longer journey is accompanied with highs and lows. I call this journey a "soul-searching" phase.
I stumbled upon a new design idea pretty fast this time - "In Orbit" is my new series, you have probably seen the start in the previous blog. I had probably - at least, this is how I personally feel - exhausted all possibilities of making a new "kimono" for my Geisha dolls. A friend had encouraged me to move back to my geometric designs as she doesn't see anyone with the kind of geometric designs that I have on my beads. She was referring to my earlier bead designs. A good advice and nudge in the right direction setting the wheels in motion.
See you in my next update and I leave you with photos of my latest beads.
