"Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort" ... Franklin D. Roosevelt
This quote couldn't be more apt for where I am in my creative process and the goals and challenges I had set out for myself this year. I am blessed to have been given some fabulous opportunities and to have wonderful creative and passionate people who share my life and give me the support and encouragement to enjoy the simple things such as embarking with an online seller (Etsy) salivating over new bead releases and of course creatnig new designs for publication.
This leads to the subject of this post - I am thrilled that I am now a part of the Digital Bead Magazine's community and will also be a regular contributor to this awesome magazine. It is a relatively new magazine and already has featured some of the world's best designers.
For this edition I designed the "Solace" loomed cuff project. The design evolved whilst someone close to me was hospitalized due to illness and then passed away. The designing process gave me so much comfort and my colour choices reflected the beautiful person he was.
