Production Method:Starting with the choice of stretching frame, fabric is stretched and stapled into the wood, Mostly, I simply display all the beads I have in the color scheme I want, and begin to shape the concept, bead-by-bead. I don't always know what a piece will look like at the end; it's mostly intuitive work - just leaning into the piece and letting it go where it will. I like a variety of size and shapes of beads, so there's a lot to see in my work with these beaded works. Beading is done with artificial sinew and a variety of bead sizes. Glass, silver and assorted accent beads, faux pearls and quartz beads make up the strings appliqued to the surface of black cotton, stretch across a 12" hoop. Bass relief - 3-D beads against a flat surface. Designed as a wall hanging. Edge-beaded on the back side, covered with fabric. 1" thick. Signed and numbered.

I bought the centerpiece of this wall hanging several years ago, and attached it to this hoop, but it rested for years until one day I rediscovered it -- and the lights came on inside my artist-in-need-of-a-new-project self! Many hours and days later I had created a galaxy of pearls and white, silver and transparent beads, and the impression that this black hole is giving a resting place to the Galaxy Mother as she contributes to the universe's new planets, stars and moons. Perhaps our future outside Earth? Stark contrast is the main event with this piece, destined for a wall where touch is invited. Follow the sparkling silver beads toward new discoveries. This textural piece will be a welcome addition to your home decor, even in this world.
