on my list of things I signed up for in my ‘continuing education’ plan was a virtual surface design class through RISD. I have a plan to cover everything that’ll sit still with my ‘beads’.
I was inspired by my hand painted flat bead necklaces and wanted to make something like my needlepoint designs. there’s no shortage of fun things to make but I wanted to start with a phone case and a beach towel but when I was poking around I saw a bathing suit option and couldn’t resist.
I was worried about how the bathing suit would work out - would the dots stretch out of shape? would there be dots in conspicuous places? - but it’s kinda cute. it’s not something I think I’ll offer since the quality is kinda meh but the phone cases and towels are so cute! you can find both in the shop under ‘fine art’ because I didn’t know where else to put them. maybe I should spend some time and update the tabs/categories in the shop so I have room for everything!!
I have a few other ideas brewing but can’t share yet but let me know if there’s something that should be plastered with some #ecspaints beads!
