I have a growing stash of clay beads, buttons, and cabochons - because I just love them! I've been ruminating on what to do with them, and the ideas keep coming. I finally had a bit of "free time" (precious these days), and I spent that time out in the wet lab and then in the bead lab. Here are my latest pieces, both of which were made specifically for the button and bead that I used in each piece.
First is my poppy pin, made with a poppy button from Lisa Peters Art.
And, of course, another vessel - my favorite form to make in felt. This piece was made specifically for the raku bead that I used as a handle - made by MAKUstudio. Here are both sides of the vessel.
And now it is absolutely imperative that I head out to the torch. The Bead & Button Show is just around the corner...
And it's time for YOU to go have a happy and creative day!
