Beads........... worshiped and worn by nearly every segment of society for centuries, constructed from so many materials ranging from seeds to pearls and precious stones and metals. their value has been coveted as a commodity as well as an adornment and their beauty deemed timeless. Often maligned in the production of contemporary jewelry, they connect us to our ancestors and evoke a sense of history and fascination with the past.
This Gallery is dedicated to the work I create using Polymer Clay Beads. Because of its lightweight properties, strength and ability to take beautiful textures, Polymer Clay is a perfect medium for the construction of beads. Whether enhanced by metal or simply strung on a piece of ordinary thread or elastic, they maintain an abiding appeal.
My vision of what I want to create with beads is to give them a contemporary edge - creating dimension with texture, pattern and color, providing a link with history while incorporating them into a respected art form for today.
Most beaded bracelets can be duplicated - Contact me if you are interested in a piece that is marked 'SOLD!'
