“My Signature Style”……..

Someone recently asked me what my signature style is and that got me thinking.

I am very much influenced by the colours of the ocean as I spent many years working on the beach at Seal Bay as a guide and it was the draw of the ocean that brought me to Seal Bay (via an ex-husband) so that is an influence in most of my favourite beads.

I love textures and the organic feel of silver on glass, something I incorporate a lot of in my beads. I am not saying it is a look or technique I created but it was one which I fell in love with and have incorporated into my ‘signature beads’ with a twist….. literally, a twist to bring out the colours and combine the textures.

Just a few examples of recent beads which I had to photograph to upload on ArtFire for sale to raise funds for the Queensland Flood Relief fund.

Do you see a signature style?

🙂

Sometimes I melt the glass smooth and at other times (my personal preference) I leave some texture on the bead which the wearer/owner can appreciate, much like a ‘worry bead’ or a ‘thinkers stone’………

Well……. back to the caravan to take advantage of this cooler weather. Making beads when it is hot is a challenge and I am trying to put together a stockpile of beads to make earrings and maybe simple bracelets and necklaces……… stay tuned!
