I've been exploring the goddess shape in a more free form manner than I've done in the past. I am not much of a "flowy" person, so working with shapes less regimented has really opened my creative juices up a bit.
I love encasing, I HAVE to encase at least 1/2 the beads I make at any sitting. I love the way the clear magnifies the base and gives it such amazing depth. So for some of these free form shapes I wanted to play with encasing then, stretching the shapes. I think I've got something good going!
