beads by Carolyn Saxby~~I am a textile artist living in St. Ives, Cornwall. I love to work in mixed media with paint and stitch. I love to manipulate fabrics and plastics with heat to alter their appearance and create interesting textures. I use these pieces along with found objects from the beach and nature (shells, sea glass, pottery pieces, seaweed, feathers, leaves, seed heads and pressed flowers) which I mix with vintage photos and fabrics to create one of a kind pieces of textile art
by GlitteringprizeGlass These beads are pretty and inexpensive. Which is good, because as much as I like bubble beads, each bubble represents a stress point in the glass. Great for some quick fun pieces in macramé, etc, but I personally wouldn't put them in my finer jewelry creations.
