The new topic for the Jewellery Artisans Community is Decades…A decade is a period of 10 years. The word is derived (via French and Latin) from the Ancient Greek dekas which means ten. So what decade do I think of when relating to this topic, it could be my favourite, the roaring 20’s when Art Deco was the latest ‘thing’.
or the groovy 60’s when music and free love abounded.
I was a child of the 70’s & 80’s growing up through my teenage years through my ‘mod’ phase followed by my ‘metal’ phase followed by my ‘motorbike’ phase followed by………Geez I have tried it all.
But what decade am I going to talk about…….EASY, the last 10 years of my life because that is how long I have been involved with beading. Through this craft obsessed life of mine I have tried many things but beading is my real passion. Through this medium I have made many friends and shared good times and bad. I have learned many different techniques and feel that I have developed my own style, although what that is is open to interpretation. So I will just show you my favourite pieces from my last decade of beading. Chimpy x
