I would like to introduce you to my Bead Soup Blog Partner, Heather Powers. You may know her from a number of wonderful places as she is a huge force in the bead world. You may recognize her from her shop Humble Beads or perhaps from The Art Bead Scene Blog. You can read more about Heather and what inspires her in her bio.
Here are some of her works you may recognize as well! I just picked a few from her www.humblebeads.com site to share with you here :)
Here are some beads from her "Art Inspired" section. I just love all of the colors and lines in this set.
She even does cute little woodland creatures like her "baby hedgies" . I am particularly in love with these just because I used to own a couple of hedge hogs. They really are such remarkable little creatures!
and I am totally blown away by this style bead she does called "Wishes and Starfishes". I am totally amazed by the techniques being done with polymer clay these days. When I was into polymer clay at age 15 it was all about cane work pieces. I really love the wonderful painterly style of these beads. They are like tiny little 3 dimensional canvas'. They have wonderful raised textures along with hand painted on colors. Wow!
I was so excited to get picked to be partners with Heather. She is so creative and I just admire her incredible skill in clay! I can't wait to see which of her treasures she sends to me in my soup!
Here is a little teaser image of the soup that is in the mail on it's way to her as we speak!
See you soon!
