Abstract Beads

WHILE I LOVE MAKING FIGURATIVE BEADS & SCULPTURE, I ALSO LOVE MAKING ABSTRACT FORMS, RICH WITH COLOR AND TEXTURE.

These beads allow me to experiment with a range of techniques, including powders, frits, stringers and murini, as well as coldworking processes where I can cut, grind and polish sections of the pieces to highlight them. I often group these pieces into series, where the end results can share processes, forms, or other characteristics.

And it's just plain fun to experiment!
