[NB. I wrote this post last weekend and planned to publish it when I put these new beads in the bead shop. Anyway, there were so few beads, they sold very quickly so I didn’t get around to publishing it. Anyway, I’m just going to publish it because it’s there and written, etc….]
As you may know, I haven’t made many beads of late. However, I had to get the clay out for a couple of things recently, so I decided to make a few bits for the shop. The tiny birds and geo patch birds I made a few weeks ago went well, so I decided to make a few more.
There are a number of the tiny pairs in different colours.
And a couple of loners, including this sweet wee blue guy.
These are likely to be the last polymer beads I make for a while. Why?
I’m trying my hand at ceramics. I did pottery for several years when I was younger and I’ve wanted to go back to it for some time. There’s a lot of stuff that I’ve forgotten so I’m doing a course of classes. I’ve also got myself a big lump of clay at home. I’m not sure how it will all work out (whether I’ll get a kiln or get firings done elsewhere, for example) but I’m enjoying it immensely.
So, I’m putting the polymer to one side for now to focus on ceramics. Accordingly, I’m afraid I won’t be taking custom orders for a while. So, this batch of birds will be it for the time being.
