Beads, Beads and more beads!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

by Kelli Pope

While the holiday weekend for most is full of traveling, picnics, outings and fireworks, for me it meant a chance to relax. .. just relax...... sigh.............................. It was pretty wonderful. But by Monday, well, the need to create kicked in. I finished my pot of coffee, and decided it was time to pull out the clay and make more beads.

I made round beads, and bird beads, square beads and roundels.

I made small beads, big beads, ovals, donuts and pendants. The Art Spark challenge had me thinking about nature, so I made flower beads, twiggy/branch and leaf pendants.

All in all, I'd say it was a VERY productive day. Don't ya think? :o) I think my final count is over 200!

Amazing what a little relaxation can do for the creative powers!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to see how they look glazed and ready for jewelry!

That's a lot of beautiful beads! I recently got some white stoneware and have had the same bead-making urge. I have not been as prolific as you chica! Go, go, go! Can't wait to see them glazed~

That IS a lot of beads, Kelli! I can't wait to see how they all turn out. I love the little birds and leaves.

Those are great! You are really developing your new art, Kelli! I hope you'll be selling some of those as loose beads! :-)
