Vacation Happens by Julia L. Hecht – Social Market for a Mirrix 2014
Vacation Happens…even to workaholic business owners and artists! It is a good thing I have children. They force me to tear myself away from work and art and keep me grounded in the other IMPORTANT stuff of life. In the crazy rush of getting ourselves prepared for departure, I neglected to take the loom, the beads, or any other crafty items. I do, of course, have my laptop and even a wifi hot spot, which I purchased for just this purpose of blogging from the beach.
It has been a fabulous interruption.
In this week’s post, I honor my newfound inspiration…Erin Simonetti. She is a loom bead weaver extraordinaire. She stretches the limits, both with her designs, use of color, and her ability to transform a 2-D medium into surprising wearable sculptures. She is a master of embellishment…. Shown above is a sample of her older work… Go to her blog to see what she is doing with the latest bead offerings, such as cup chain and spike beads. When I get home, I am going to embellish my deco diamonds bracelet and see what I come up with.
Til then….Happy Weaving and don’t forget the IMPORTANT stuff of life.
Peace and Beads,
