Hi everyone! I'm a new participant and I'm very excited about the bjp process. I took a button class from Robin, which I enjoyed immensely. But I took home more than a finished project; I took to heart her words of encouragement for exploring yourself and experiences through the medium of beads. I have considered myself a good crafter but didn't think of myself as an artist. I was too wrapped up in perfectionism to let go and create from the right brain. So here I am. I've decided to go with the 1 1/4" button and explore with color and texture. I also like to incorporate found objects into my work if I can. Here's my first bjp project: Winter Blues, made with various 11's & 15's, plus beach glass.
