Studio Series – Beaded curtain…

…kind of. Here, in my particularly packed-with-lotsa-colorful-stuff-for-making-beads work station you see something hanging from my ventilation hood from bent open paper clips. It looks like a glorious wad of hanging color. If you look more closely toward the back you can see a string of Fran Lizardi’s beads hanging there too…they’re so cool! Anyway, what are those things and why are they there?

I’m glad you asked. No, they’re not the start of a beaded curtain. They’re long hat pins that I put beads on and then clamped with a bead stoppers and then hung them up. They are usually beads that I made the day or days before and I need them nearby for reference so I can see what I want to do again and what didn’t work. Check out the close-up:

You might recognize some of your beads on there and lots of them that have not seen light outside the studio. The thing is, even if I don’t think they’re appealing enough to sell, like I said before, a lot of anything looks good so I’m starting my beaded curtain. Luckily my hoods are strong and sturdy and can hold a lot of weight!

    They look so luscious hung together – a beaded curtain made of such beads will be fantastic. They all look good enough to sell to me!
