Leave it to Lorelei

October 2, 2010

To be frank, I’m not sure what to call these lovely little tangled bundles of wire that I’ve started making, but I find them incredibly versatile in my designs; maybe a few will end up in my new challenge creation

OK. I’m delighted to be in another blog challenge, this one organized by the marvelously talented Lorelei Eurto. This one involves a little shopping trip up to Michaels instead of swapping with another bead maker (go ahead — twist my arm and make me go to Michaels), but I think it will be fun to see what a bunch of different people come up with when they’re working with the same beads. After all, I just loved what I was able to make in Lori Anderson’s last bead soup party.

The reveal for Lorelei’s challenge is set for October 17th, so that will be just around the corner really. What excited me about this challenge — besides the opportunity to join ranks with such an amazing group of blogging artists — was the choice of materials. Take a gander at the white chain Lorelei has selected. It’s so fresh and new looking … not at all the sort of stuff I’ve been using in my store. Not sure what kind of focal component I’ll end up using, but that will be fun to muse over, too.

Anyway, I just love it when I come across a situation where I know I’m going to be inspired to think in a different direction. As a kid, I was never a big fan of words like “change” and “challenge” or “sweat” for that matter. I still avoid the word sweat whenever I can (unless I’m referring to what you do to an onion in a saute pan), but the other two words have become good friends in my vocabulary. Here’s to new ideas, new friends, and just a few more beads to add to my collection!
