Jewelry Artisans Community Blog Hop – Carole Carlson of Beadsophisticate

Each month some of the artists from the Jewelry Artisans Community blog on the same topic.  Since many of us are living in areas experiencing unusual weather, we thought we’d discuss how weather affects our creativity.

I live in a moderate climate, but this week the temperature is 30 degrees lower than normal for this time of year.  In fact, we had a snow event on Saturday that 1. caught us by surprise (thanks, Mr. Weather Guy and 2. turned into ice overnight.  The next day, the temperature shot up to 50 degrees. Go figure.

Snow and rain means time to cocoon for me.  I love to watch the snow come down, as long as my family is home, safe and warm.  Since this latest snow day fell on a weekend, it was the perfect time to start working with polymer clay.  I’m working on a line of jewelry for the B’Sue Boutique Build a Line Challenge, and I decided to include some polymer clay items, so I’ve been trying out some different things, just playing around and seeing where that takes me.
