5 Steps to Jewelry Making On The Go
As a gal on the go, I love portable beading projects. By portable I mean you can create components on the couch, at the kitchen table, in front of the TV, in bed, at your BFFs, on a plane, train, or automobile (as long as you're not driving).
A dedicated studio for your creativity outlet is a great, but many don't have that luxury. One of my favorite artists, Mary Engelbreit, started out at age eight in a pantry her mother set up as her "studio." Look at what that type of encouragement fosters (of course, there's a big old bunch of talent thrown in the mix, too)!
My quilter peeps have quite a chore transporting their supplies and projects; very nearly impossible keeping it portable. And although those types of masterpieces are certainly a "good thing," there are times you want to take a project or two on the road.
Lately, wire working and seed beading have become my favorite portable mediums. I' have found the key to seed beading enroute-a sticky mat from Beadalon-plus their "baby tools" are very convenient when wireworking on-the-go. I've taken these on the plane without so much as a peep from the TSA, and they're nice to have around in case you need an extra set to quickly teach/convert a newbie!
