Amazing! Artists With A Special Touch
You may have noticed that Haffina doesn't look like much of a business name. In fact, it's not... there's Haffina Creations and BeadsByHaffina in addition to her blog. To read her bio is intimidating... in addition to being the "mum of five," she lists many other responsibilities which include titles such as administrator, moderator, member, columnist, and guildmaster. Frankly, I was tired just reading it! If you'd like to see for yourself, here's the link to her bio: http://www.artfire.com/modules.php?name=Shop&seller_id=37187&op=new&body=2
What fascinates me the most are the handmade polymer beads. We've all become aware of the many incredibly talented jewelry artists that seem to be everywhere. How many of them are using Haffina's beads? Are you ready to be amazed?
This handmade cabochan measures an inch and a half in diameter. The description reads, "This cabochon was handformed, cured and then sanded through 5 grits of sandpaper before buffing to a shine." Can't you just imagine the impressive piece that could be built around this single bead! How about this one...
I'm seeing a tropical sunset, full of fire, and waves crashing into the white sand beach. How these beads would inspire even the novice jewelry maker!
Need more to work with? How about this...
City nights, city lights! I just find it amazing that such things can be made from simple polymer clays!
But it doesn't stop there. Perhaps after creating these beautiful beads, she can't resist creating wonderful pieces of jewelry from them.
Please do yourself a favor and visit all of her sites. It will certainly be time well-spent!
