Dots, dots, dots
Here are all forty beads I made during the bead challenge I just completed. I was limited to only using two colors and only dots. When I decided to start working with my torch again I was pretty nervous, so having some sort of focus really helped motivate me. I learned so much about dots. I also had to keep reminding myself to only use dots and gravity to manipulate the shapes. I tend to use my tools a lot to smooth things out, especially when I get impatient.
I don't have a favorite bead out of these forty, but I got a lot of good ideas. The most important thing is I feel so much more competent with my glass and torch again.
One of these days I will figure out what to do with all these beads I have been making!
Question to consider: Do you find creative projects less intimidating when you have a narrow focus or do you prefer a completely open focus?
