Welcome to Inside the Studio!
Each week one of our contributors gives you a sneak peek into their studio, creative process or inspirations. We ask a related question of our readers and hope you’ll leave comments! As an incentive we offer a free prize each week to bribe you to use that keyboard. The following week we choose a random winner.

Hello there! It seems like it was just last week I was here writing an ‘Inside the Studio’ post – but no, it was way back at the beginning of August, and that definitely wasn’t last week. How did that happen then?
Since my last ItS post, in many ways there hasn’t been much change in the Songbead Studio. My fair finished on the 24th August, and since then I have felt a little like I’ve been chasing my tail – struggling to keep up with the ever-expanding to-do list that Curious and Songbead keep me busy with!
However, one continuing story is my work with teeny-tiny seed beads….Previously, I’ve shown you my work with 2.2mm (size 11) seed beads – but this past month, I’ve moved onto the 1mm seed beads (size 15).
See how tiny they are?
A selection in my favourite colours…
Earrings are usually very popular at my shows, and this summer, I was repeatedly asked for small earrings. I am all about the long, swingy, swooshy earrings….so I decided to use my new tiny beads (approx. 7mm across) to create these sweet wee earrings.
I created a matching set in Autumnal colours – more of these to come; what do you think?
…and teamed some up with some of my favourite Art Bead components.
This week, you could win a pair of my handmade handwoven bead earrings, in the colour(s) of your choice! Just answer this question in the comments below…
