Shelley’s Special Something
I hear it a lot… “I’m just not creative,” they say. “I just don’t know what to do if I don’t have a pattern. And I REALLY don’t know what to do with irregular stones.” Rough cut gemstones and organic styles can throw some people for a loop. What if the pieces don’t line up perfectly? What if they don’t match? What if they lay a little funky?!?! The uncertainty can push a crafter over the edge!
Regular Bead World client (and friend, of course) Shelley Ilene is one of those designers that has a way with unruly, irregular stones. She has a certain panache — unusual color combinations, creative cuts and fabulous findings are what feed her soul. Here’s some Shelley Ilene eye candy to help you make the jump from uncertain to courageous!
