Absolutely Beads 2007

I was fortunate enough to be include in the Absolutely Beads 2007 juried show sponsored by Beads & Beyond in Bellevue, WA. I'm sharing my 2 entries.


"Miser" which I dedicated to my Dad. The story card with it read: "My Dad is a very generous man; he knows the value of a dollar and would much rather hang onto it than spend it. It's always been a source of laughter when my Mom and I would tell him we're going shopping; he was just never sure if he should grab his heart or guard his wallet."







My other entry "If Wishes Had Wings" received an Award of Merit. The story behind it "I have always believed in wishes and that they do come true. Since childhood I have been fascinated with dragonflies, such magical creatures. What better way for good wishes to go out into the world than on the wings of magic"

Awesome work Cyn. Your faces make me want to get the clay out and play again! SO FUN! Think you could put together a tutorial on how you make your faces?

Hey Lora, thanks! yes get out the clay and play!! hmm a tutorial, I'd have to sit down and really think about what I'm doing...not only that how do explain "you have to be a bit twisted"? but then you'd understand that, right?

Cyn,
Do you have a mold that you made and tweak each face, or do you start from scratch each time? Inquiring minds want to know.

Arline, no mold, each one starts out as a blob of clay. Depending on my mood is how they turn out...I do have some with their tongue sticking out in a silly sort of way. Seems I can't do serious!
