Welcome to Bedecked Beads Jewellery Blog. Here I am exploring the use of polymer clay and observations of the handmade world

Lockdown and Creativity

Posted on


What affect has lockdown had on your creativity? Unfortunately I havent been as creative as I should be but I hope that will improve. I have taken part in various Zoom sessions with the Scottish Polymer Clay Group and also the British Polymer Clay Guild I have lots of excuses for my lack of creativity, as most of us do! We are planning to move to England and have had to go house hunting and have been busy destashing and tidying up, so gone is my clay mess on the dining table and I am now in the spare bedroom, frightened to make a mess ! You never know when a buyer may turn up.

I feel as though I have all this extra time but it becomes more difficult to focus. Have you experienced that at all?

Bedecked Beads Jewellery,WorkspaceHere is my VERY tidy workspace and as you can see I have been working on some new seam rippers which will be added VERY soon.

During one of our Zoom sessions, we were meant to be working on slabs (which are not really my thing). 

However you can incorporate some of the techniques into other I embraced my inner lockdown madness....




 I was inspired by colour, texture, Cubism, Picasso and the late Liz Welch who made some terrific jewellery. So here is my homage to them, unique face brooches in quirky designs.
