Fields of birch trees, goldenrod, willows and thistles were the inspirations for this latest batch of disk beads. I love taking car rides and watching the wild fields of Michigan pass me by, there are so many textures and colors in the forgotten spaces along the roads, in ditches and at the edges of the forests near my home. I need to start taking my camera out with me!
I whipped these up a few weeks ago, revisiting some designs from last year. I like their graphic quality. Kind of playful and fun.
Would you be interested in large sets of disk beads like these ones? I'm thinking of creating some during next week's beadmaking sessions.
