Beading at the Beach
I've been working on a Diane Briegleb "face" this week....barely started but I thought it would be fun to document the process...the beading part doesn't take a lot of time, but waiting for inspiration for the next step does. I tend to pull out a focal piece - the face, in this case - then pull out beads to see which ones "sing" when they're next to it. Then I start beading and as I bead I sort of "listen" for what needs to come next. I think a lot of artists work this way, although I don't know if they'd describe it in the same way I do!
Anyway, here she is...in her early stage...Sea Spring....
