The Goddesses Project

A couple of years ago (way back when I did commissions and special orders) a lady called Maria asked me to make her some tiny pink beads. I didn't know it at the time but she was working on something she called 'The Goddesses Project'.

The other day Maria emailed me to tell me that The Goddesses Project was finally complete and she sent me a link to the finished piece - a beautiful necklace featuring pink beads that she'd commissioned from all her favourite beadmakers. It's a bit of an honour for my beads to be residing next to those made by Kandice Seeber, Lezlie Belanger and Corina Tettinger, I can tell you. Especially seeing as at the point I made those tiny pink beads I was still making beads in the kitchen on my Hot Head torch!

You can see the finished necklace by clicking here. Big thank you to Maria for involving my beads in such a wonderful project!

I'll tell you what though, as I was searching through my bead photo archives for those pink ones I was flabbergasted at how many beads I've made over the years. I saw beads there that I'd forgotten making that featured designs that I never do any more. I think I'm going to have to print some of my bead photos out and take them down to the shed and 're-visit' the designs and colours. Bring them up to date, as such. Could be fun!

It is a cool project. Maria loves her pink. Can you tell?!

Any beads in particular that you'd like to see re-done?

I love the bloom beads that you've done but then again I love floral beads!

What a gorgeous necklace! I loved your beads Laura. What an excellent idea to revamp some of your older designs! I look forward to seeing them.

That necklace is lovely - what a good idea! I like collections of pretty things put together to make a whole. Don't you find that you get carried away with each new inspiration and other designs just as pretty fall by the wayside! I was looking through your gallery the other day - what a lot you have to choose from......

If you're looking to revive some of your 'older' styles I'd love to see some more of your Swish focals.

I just love these but haven't ever seen them for sale since I've been buying lampwork.

Thanks for all your comments and bead-revival suggestions. I've taken note so we shall see what emerges from the shed .....
