Welcome to day three of the Ten Days of Giveaways here at the blog! The last two days have featured brand new work, but today I am looking back. I received a note from a good friend and customer today who said that she was first a little nervous when I started to change my style, but she really likes what I am doing now. She was probably referring to when I started being inspired by Steampunk, which is a critical point in the last few years, where my work started to change pretty drastically. Before Steampunk, I was doing much softer, organic, and natural designs, with some fun pop culture kinda cute designs mixed in. Much of my recent work has been more industrial and based on hardware and textures and creating a different feeling. The change seems like a natural and gradual transition to me, because the work I am doing now is very satisfying and is something that I have been seeking for many years.
Anyway, I was thinking about it and I am just so grateful to have so many people who support me and my work, even as it changes. I try to still make the older styles of work, especially when it is requested, but I appreciate that my readers and customers and friends come along with me on my aesthetic journeys.
Today's giveaway is made of the organic and natural beads shown above: a Garden Teapot and a variety of tiny leafy and flowery accent beads. Also included is a selection of complimentary glass beads, shown below.
To win today's prize, leave a comment on the Earthenwood Studio Chronicles blog and answer this question:
What are your favorite of my designs or bead lines, either past or present? Anything from the past that you would love to see me make again?
One winner will be chosen at random from all the comments. Comments are screened and will be posted June 15th. All winners will be chosen and posted to the blog on June 15th, so be sure to check back then.
