I seriously know I have a problem…..I am usually noT this obsessive with things (welllllll maybe a little) but what is it that drives bead collectors to such lengths that they need to fill their house with these little orbs of color!! It’s pure bliss to collect them and even more fun to just run your hands through them!!…yes, I’m still talking about beads….lol!
BELOW IS AN ENTIRE CABINET OF NOTHING BUT MY BEADS I PURCHASED IN AFRICA…INCLUDING THE EYE CANDY IN THOSE TOP DRAWERS…….THE HAND BEADED BEADS BY THE ZULU WOMEN
I’m going to try to make it a habit of showing you more corners of my studio on the blog each week. I know how much I enjoy seeing other artists work spaces….it helps make a connection with the art and the artist….. in this world of internet and email the blog is a great way to share this kind of stuff!.
BELOW IS MY STAGING AREA FOR THE BEAD BENTO BOWL COLLECTIONS
Getting these assortments done and ready to photograph takes about 5 days of browsing through my bead stash. Once this tray of assortments are looking just perfect they go in to my photo studio to have their portrait taken which takes another full day.
After that…….those collections you see take another 25 minutes or more EACH to list on the site and describe the beads. It’s one of the most relaxing things I do in the studio but as you can see, very time consuming but a labor of love!
