To my fellow seed beaders I'm curious about your attraction, why seeds?
Do you find while beading in public the non beader comments go like this
'You must have really good eyes'
'You must have a lot of patience'
'How long does that take?'
I don't know about you, but my family might tell you that patience is not necessarily one of my virtues. And 'How long does it take?' I never have a good answer, I don't track it, it takes hours, I know that, but how many...a few every day for a few days...
So why seeds? The attraction to color, the level of detail, the meditative quality of the weaving, the fabulous result, the endless variety, the simplicity of the tools required?
Leave me a comment, send me mail or if you'd like to explore the subject on your blog, send me a link. I'd love to hear from you.
And if you're reading and not drawn to the seeds, why not?
