...She was not gone, She was only thinking. She claims that she has been thinking about some beads I recently received in trade. They are flat teardrop with side drilled holes. Well, I had the idea to put them into a "Fans" motif. I had stalled out, but maybe Scarlet is right. I went back to it and it really flowed. I ended up with an adjustable choker in shades of green, cream, and silver. I have not yet had a chance to photograph it, so look for it in the coming week.
I have also had success on photographing, and writing the instructions for "Basic Knots", and "Spirals Anklet". I'm only about a third of the way thru actually typing, etc; but I now know how it will be structured. I have decided I want modules like "Basic Knots", and projects like "Spirals" along with chapters about materials, knots, design elements, etc. That way, I can publish some info for free (like previously written article on materials), and sell certain chapters, and projects with and without kits. This vague vision is coming into focus.
I have decided that I want my website "KnotGypsy Designs" to be a showcase site (see link in "My Other Sites" to the left). Home page will have new collections, etc. Subsequent pages will be devoted to a particular design motif, with descriptions, inspiration, photos, etc. I'll decide further once I have this much accomplished.
I will keep "My Etsy Shop" for sales (see link in "My Other Sites" to the left).
So many ideas, so little time. I need to make time for beading, too. My beads get lonely when I cannot play with them. I think I hear them calling...
