What I have been doing

Well it has been 4 months since we ran away to live in our little gunyah in the bush, so I thought I'd show you what I have been working on during this time.

Here is a composite of designs. Notice the beautiful artisan made beads and pendants. See the close-ups of the artfully connected components and the beauty and colour of the beads.

      You can't see anything?

Truth is I have not done anything, unless you count blog hopping and perusing Etsy and other bead sites. I feel that I am again waiting waiting waiting and my frustration is rising. I would walk passed my boxes and read my book to see what was in them. Sometimes I would even give them a shake to see if they rattled.
I really cannot wait for the house to be built before I set up my studio.
So I looked at the shed and decided that moving some of the boxes around would give me enough space at the back of the shed to set up. So I did!

Pretty Luxurious eh?
I think I can claim that I probably have the grungiest studio going. Its dark at the back of the shed, dusty in spite of the carpet on the ground. Its hot and stuffy mostly because the breezes don't penetrate and being a contortionist and having a love for maze solving is a pre-requisite.
Still, it is my little corner and I have been re-discovering all my treasures, including the last project I had started. There were even some treasures I didn't get to open before we left. Even if I don't make anything, just being able to see and hold the beads is balm to the soul!


  1. Too funny, Greer. Doesn't it make you feel just a wee bit more at home to have your beads out where you can touch them? I kind of like the lighting and ambience of your new studio.

  2. what a great space Greer - good to hear that the beads are coming out again. just add a lamp and you're good to go!
