Good Day to all my fellow beaders, You know there were several more questions posed for us beaders who are doing the bead/blog hop. I thought I would answer those today. What is my favorite style? I like all style, but i find myself drawn to the smaller beaded collars, and beaded focals. I do love beaded cuffs as well. I also like to do beaded sculptural forms as well ( but more on that later) What kind of materials do I like to use. Well for beading, I love fireline, and other threads I have not yet tried the shibori ribbon, and i really want to (I have seen so many of my fellow beaders doing really gorgeous work with it.) I have worked with soutache braid, but I need more practice with it. I can do beaded beads, or any style like that. I really don't like Nymo thread. I get extremely frustrated when i use it. It always knots horribly. What techniques do I prefer. and what don't i like. I am not sure what is meant by techniques. I love bead weaving, bead embroidery, and wirewrapping. I don't think that there is any technique thatI don't like. Just some that I do more ofter than others. If by techniques you mean peyote, herringbone, RAW, or CRAW, brick or square. Peyote would be tops. I have designed several different peyote panels ( pictures) that i enjoy doing. RAW is another of my favorites.
what colors do i use and like the most and which do I run screaming from? I love color, love mixing and matching colors to make piece look a certain way. Blues, purples, and greens are my favorites, and well as metal colors. But I also love reds, oranges, pinks and yellows as well. NEON colors. NO WAY. don't like them at all.
So now you now a bit more about me. What you don't know, is that I love animals, a great joke. am a good listener, and love being outdoors, which is why my studio is now in a barn where I can open up the doors and windows and listen to the birds, while I work.
