Berries! Art Elements Berries Reveal

Hi everyone! This month I hosted the Art Elements challenge and I chose the topic "Berries". The launch post is here...

Anyhooo, I planned to make a whole series of berry beads, but alas, Fate intervened. I had an accident at home (fell!) that resulted in a broken wrist. I had surgery about 3 weeks ago, and have been recovering. I was determined to make at least some tiny effort, so despite the pain in my left hand, I managed to make THREE WHOLE BEADS haha. Welp, here they are in all their glory.

Please hop to see what others made - I can't wait to see for myself! Enjoy!

  1. Yikes, Karen ... hope you're on the mend in a positive sort of way now! And hopefully that's not your working hand?
    Those are cute and realistic looking berries, can't wait to see them with their colors on. Alysen

    1. Thank you! It’s my left hand but it’s surprising how much you need BOTH hands to complete tasks in clay.
