Green Girl Studios and Bead Commitment Issues....
My bead commitment issues have re-surfaced. ABS loves Cynthia Thornton's wondrous book,Enchanted Adornments. Cynthia's book and Green Girl Studios beads, pendants and toggles always make me want to become a woodland fairy. The lovely assortment above was sent to me by the amazingly talented designer and creative soul, Andrew Thornton in a swap readying ourselves to do a Collaboration Exploration. It was about then that I was hit with migraines which I'm still struggling with - so our collaboration has been delayed. (My bad Andrew!)
Right about now you're wondering what this has to do with my bead commitment issues? These pieces are laying right in front of me now, I've figured out about 100 designs I could make with them but I can't get myself to commit to a permanent design for them.
I love holding them in my hands and reading the oh-so-pithy phrases on the back. They're like little bits of magic. So maybe it's not so bad afterall to want to keep them loose so they be held and read and carried in my pocket so I always have a bit of a woodland fairy's magic with me.
