Vessels From Another Planet

I'm delighted to be able to share that these pieces were accepted into the Bead and Button Show Bead Dreams Exhibit. They are part of my Seeds and Pods from Another Planet series. They are hollow, wearable vessels of lampworked glass and enamels, with fine silver collars. The tallest one is about 4 1/2" high.





This necklace from the same series was not accepted but hey, I will have a kick-ass necklace to wear at the show!



I'm quite a non-self-promoting hermit, so this will be very nice exposure and I feel very honored to have been accepted. The show will be on display during the Bead and Button show in Milwaukee. Last year the work was really amazing so if you happen to have the chance to see it, don't miss it. There were spectacular pieces in all the categories.

Karen, you already know what I think about you and your amazing work. Your new work is simply stunning and being selected for Bead Dreams could not have happened to a nicer person! I'm simply in love with the first one on the left! If it's for sale after the show, please put a sold sign on it for me!
