“Arguing with the Muse...”

Description from J Yee smart chick: for the chat yesterday w/ Kitty chicky about listening to the Creative muse when she tells us what beads should be in a design... much less how the design WANTS to evolve... :), the times when we argue back and forth with the muse... listening to what she tells us, sometimes resisting what she tries to tell us... :)

    Thank you chickies! this was also partly inspired by Chicky LE’s comments on one of my other Picks about our beads in storage boxes talking to us: some that say “hey take us out, experiment w/ us” or “hey come make a design w/ us…” or “have fun w/ us…” :)

    I just wish I didn’t make such a mess, though! lol

    I know… but that’s the fun of REALLY taking our lovely lil’ beads out of the containers and “messing around w/ ‘em…”, cuz sometimes they don’t STOP talkin’ till we do!!! :) I know, I too make “bead messes” when I’m trying to experiment w/ bead color and texture palettes… :)

    Out of great messes come great designs! :D

    Joyce, I love this beautiful pick of yours!!! What a fabulous color combo! :D Thanks for including me in this, too! I find it’s always best to listen to my beads, as they won’t stop talking to me until I obey them. ;-) ROTFLOL

    AquaKitty has been unusually quiet of late when it comes to talking about the Big Sale. When pressed for more information, he tends to clam up, preferring instead to discuss his upcoming autobiography, “My Life as a Superhero ~ The Untold Story of AquaKitty and His Adventures at Lima Beads” (coming soon to a bookstore near you).

    This is a beautiful pick. Did you go with what the muse said on this one? I love it. It’s a favorite. Does anyone have the Seraphinite? I’m wondering what color it is..gray, green, blue green?????

  12. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    Never mind. I looked it up. It is a deep forest green with silvery green wisps through it.

    I like the “musings” of our LB friends here, and I like your pick very much. :-)

    J Yee smart chick says:

    Thank you for the questions chickies – yes, in this case I DID listen to the muse – she said, you know Joyce, you need to use some beads you normally wouldn’t, like that kambaba jasper, AND some black… hee hee… THEN you can throw in some of the “greens” you like, such as those silver gray biwa sticks :)

  15. Kitty Chicky Cat
    Kitty Chicky Cat says:

    I’m glad you listened to your muse because this pick is very cool and inspirational! It fits it’s name perfectly! Dark conflict finally coming to resolution and brightening and clearing up! :)

    J Yee smart chick says:

    hey kitty chicky, you know that it’s pretty difficult for me to stick w/ dark colors for long… :) , it would be good for me to do a few Picks that have all dark/subdued colors, eh??? :)
    LOVE your description above, very poetic!!! :)

    Love your FP great color combo and amazing stones. Thanks for the “muse”, I now have a great idea for a necklace and bracelet combo. Maybe even a set of earrings.

    Hey Scrapy Lady, you’re welcome, hope that you’ll share pics of the necklace and bracelet combo you make, along w/ earrings, OK??? :)

    Smart Chick, what do you do when the Muse stops talking to you?? I’m in a rut! guess I need to take out some of those beads and see which ones start talking to me! This is a great pick, BTW!
