Always on Sundae


I think I must have been daydreaming about mint chocolate ice cream with whipped cream and a cherry on top when I made this girl bead.

I do that a lot. Well, not only daydream about sweet stuff, but make beads that aren't planned, but just so you know, they show up on my mandrel. My hands aren't really possessed, but I start making something and then take a sharp right turn into something else.

My Sundae gal, has a chocolate chip skirt, a mint top with chocolate dripping down, whipped cream and of course the prerequisite cherry on top. Her bracelet and hair decoration are made of cherries too. I'd love to have something healthy and say they're organic, but honestly, I think they're more of the out of the jar variety. Too red to be real, wouldn't you say?

So my question for today is...do you pre-plan your beads? (honestly, I do plan plenty of mine), or do you wing it? Tell me a little about your process. I think we'd all learn from it.

And once Etsy is up and running again, I'll be listing my Mint Sundae girl at http://www.StudioMarcy.etsy.com. I think they're currently down for repairs. Hmmm, that will teach me to write my blogs at the crack of dawn.

See you tomorrow!
