That's what I decided to do after yesterday's post. I opened up an Etsy store MFD Beadwork Originals and listed my first three items. I had forgotten how long it takes...getting the right photos, writing about the pieces, adding the tags and all that jazz. I'm planning on adding a new piece a day until everything I have on hand is listed, then hopefully two new pieces a week.
If they don't sell there then it's off to the gallery with them.
At some point today I need to apply to SRAJD, EBW and BAO and see if they'll have me.
I was busy last night playing catch up, making this sample of freeform peyote for an upcoming class. I hardly realised I was working because there were some great movies on last night including The Crying Game, which I haven't seen in ages. Good movies, beading and a latte...heaven!
I get to write the pattern today. Of course, a pattern for freeform is an oxymoron and what it will actually be is instructions for lots of little techniques used in a simple freeform design. I love the textures you get with freeform, I don't know why I don't do more of it because any of my freeform pieces tend to draw lots of attention. Teaching it will be...interesting...lol!
I'm coaxing my students to put a little of their own design into things next month and that's challenging for all of us.
