From A Box Of Heaven

First time I made these pods I sort of found the meaning with polymer clay for me. The great artist Donna Kato made a tutorial for the cane for these beads. And I was so happy when I managed to make them. In fact I´ll never get bored when I´m making these beads.

And people seem to be fascinated by them. It must be the colors, the shapes or just the fact that this is something new in Norway.

I have this box where I put the sanded and polished beads and sometimes I can just take off the lid and look at the beads. I actually made them and I´m so happy and thankfull that I can.

Sometimes we get really hung up on what we want to do or to be. And most of these things don´t mean anything other than to show that we´re well off or successful.

Maybe we need to be thankful for what we actually can and what we have. Sort of see the heaven in the small things.

I do that in these beads. Every bead remind me that there can be beauty in small things.

It´s just a matter of perspective.

Find your "bead" today and enjoy it big time.


  1. I know what you mean...I usually do my claying late at night and put the beads in the oven before I go to bed. As soon as I wake up I have to go look at them. And then I have trouble resisting sanding at least one of each kind to see what they look like polished. And then I'm late for work...

  2. Thank you for sharing this - I´m glad you find such joy in your work!!!
