Just a note to say I start serious back therapy and will be blogging only intermittently. Yesterday, my friend, Sharon, came by and we worked on a gallery presentation for her bead work.
Her current project is beadwork boxes for her Bible Study Class for Christmas. A daunting task. She works 8 to 10 hours a day beading.
No two look alike.
The quality of her work is impeccable. She only uses delicate beads, they are very small. Indians beading is done one size up from delicate, called seed. The camera magnifies the beads. The individual bead is very much invisible without the camera.
They really are beautiful. She makes Christmas ornaments, jewelry, tapestries, teapots, cups and saucers and other clever items on consignment.
Of the fifteen she showed me, they are all different. I’m in awe of what I can’t do that involves so much intense passion. Beaders. A population apart.
