It's Merry time!!!!
This month's question: what do I hope to achieve this year?
There are only two things I REALLY want to achieve this year:
The first is to continue my collaborations with these two lovely people: Isabelle and Chris
As soon as I saw Zaza's mindboggling patient and neat work I thought we could combine our skills into truly unique creations. Zaza bought some of my tutorials and is now well into wire-wrapping and has her own unique creations mixed with her fabulously neat beadwork, and we just started our collaboration with these 2 HUGE rings!!!
Chris works with silver, natural stones and has the most amazing eye for finding truly amazing handmade lampork beads. She regularly checks up on me and what I create, pounces on what takes her fancy and incorporate my work into hers. This is her latest materpiece and it takes my breath away everytime I look at it... Chris has SUCH a gift for making stones and beads look as beautiful as they possibly can, absolutely amazing!!!!
My second goal this year is to keep having fun creating of course, and to go beyond what I have done so far... Now here's the tricky bit... what does it actually mean??? Well, it may mean 'go beyond in size' and I actually have one on-going project with a huge raw amethyst that I want to make into a decorative item... but I also want to progress in wire-wrapping and make something that makes me gawp and say: did I make that??? And subsequently have a big grin on my face... =D
And also, I want to get to grips with Facebook... because, dear me, I am so lost in there, I reckon it's a great marketing tool, but phew... they have not made it simple... Or am I too old for it??? LOL!!!
