I have to say, spring was slow in coming here in Southeast Alaska. Is it fair to blame my late April piece on the weather…perhaps that is a stretch. I went with an oval shape (which I like_ and a berry theme. The thing that was new to me with this barrette is that, rather than 100% intuitive creation, I designed and drafted out the berries and leaves before I got to the beading.
My beaded work now has a home at Juneau Artists Gallery. This is a new step for me and I’m finding it fun, rewarding, a little overwhelming at first (it is a coop gallery is run by its members. It is really fun to meet people and work with the other artists, but I’m still on the learning curve.)
