Totally Tubular- Tube Beads

20 Oct

Totally Tubular- Cylindar Beads

Club Creative Studio creates hand-rolled polymer clay beads with excitement. Each hand-made bead and item created with them are unique.

Because Club Creative Studio hand-made beads are each one-of-a-kind, you know that no one in the entire world will have anything like it. Each beaded design has its own personality and unique value.

The Club Creative Studio tube-shaped beads are special because they are presented as a focal bead. Each single clay bead is capped off on each end and has an added accent from a dangle fob at one end and the attached suede cord and clasp at the other.

Colorful and detailed, the tube beads are finished off to be both hand-glossed and non-glossed beads. The simplicity is found in the simple cord strand. The complexity is found in the design details which are made by adding multiple layers of our hand-sliced cane work applications. These beads are festive!

Creative Snowflakes Fall Art Preview

9 Oct

Club Creative Studio’s blog continues to highlight art that is creative.  Of course, I can not write without including the “creative results” of my own efforts from time to time.  Today, I anticipate Winter although it is still Fall, and I wanted to share the creations with you in this special Fall Preview blog post.  I have found that my fun and functional snowflake ornaments are ready to be added to the online storefront after many months of creating them. I look forward to bringing them along to my Fall Craft Fairs.

You’ll find the Artisan Snowflake Ornaments available on a limited basis because they are each created to be

one-of-a-kind:  http://www.clubcreativestudio.com

Being an artist working with my hand-made clay and glass beads (most of the time), gives much satisfaction.  Love for my art niche is at the heart of my passion for my creative outlet and goals.  My daily mantra to: BE CREATIVE EVERYDAY offers me a continuous challenge to find ways to incorporate clay and glass beads into fun and functional hand-made items.

Each snowflake ornament includes several of my hand-rolled, one-of-a-kind, unique polymer clay beads and a variety of other hand-picked coordinating elements.  When I create my clay beads there are as many as thirteen steps involved from the starting point to finish.   This is indeed a labor of love to include hand-made aspects into items, this project is no exception.  The beads are then attached by hand to a wire frame and secured at the ends, resulting in a unique design that resembles a snowflake shape.

Club Creative Studio: Artisan Snowflake Ornaments

These Artisan Snowflake Ornaments have been created to function as art that hangs for display by means of the attached ribbon loop. Each item is not duplicated in any way, that is what makes them so special to own! It’s appeal is that it is VERY unique!

Art from Club Creative Studio

Consider perhaps these suggestions: Adorn a Christmas tree branch, place on a door knob, hang from a window pane hook or suction cup, dangle from a car rear view mirror, attach to a cabinet or dresser drawer knob. Wrap around a candle holder, flower vase or curtain swag.  Let your imagination take you places, and take this artful item with you for display.  You can appreciate this hand-made item all year-long. Snowflakes are not just to enjoy in winter any longer!

Thank you for viewing Club Creative Studio Art. It’s a pleasure to be creative everyday, creating Art That Sets You Apart!  Please visit often, as the inventory does change because all items are subject to availability. http://www.clubcreativestudio.com

Hand-made Artisan Snowflake Ornamental Hanging.

Feature Friday- Beautiful Beads

19 Aug

I posted on the Club Creative Studio Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/ClubCreativeStudio a photo of small plastic disks.  The disks are used in golf as markers for golf ball placement and they are pushed into the ground and stay put by the protruding part in the middle of the disk.

I use golf markers differently

I pose the question:  What might someone do with this item that is different from it’s intended use?  How creative can you be?  Think hard. Do you know a way that a common item can be used differently to help you?

I recently posted  a great definition of creativity on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/clubcreativeart “New thinking leads to new possibilities.”  I do believe that you need to be able to open up to new experiences to gain the opportunity to see things in a different light.  Also, being brave is a big part of creativity.  One has to step out-of-bounds to experience a different view from the world of rules and expectations. When speaking and referring to creativity, risk-taking is a desired characteristic.  Being strong and willing to look deeper with new materials and techniques is what can transform creative juice into a totally new concoction.

I have used a common golf marker disk in an uncommon way in art.  The disks now help me in my business because it makes a job easier.  It was a challenge for me to take a photograph of a bead because of its potential to roll.  It  is now an easier task for me as I conveniently place an individual bead onto the golf placement disk.  It is held secure, still and is a solution to better picture-taking.  The ease and swiftness of  attaching my bead leads to a smooth photography session, and ultimately a better photograph.  Yeah for thinking outside of the box and making it work for my needs.

Club Creative Studio Hand-Rolled Clay Beads

Enjoy admiring the details of my hand-rolled polymer clay beads. I enjoy creating one-of-a-kind, limited count beads in various sizes, shapes and with hand-mixed colors.  You will find some beads are also hand-glossed and some are left sanded and in their natural state after baking.  These wonderful beads are so fun for me to create.  Most beads involve upwards of 13 steps before completion of a single bead from start to finish.  Club Creative Studio beads are a labor of love to say the least.  Items that incorporate our hand-made beads are considered ART THAT SETS YOU APART because of  uniqueness and special visual qualities. I strive to BE CREATIVE EVERYDAY!
