A new adventure!

It all started with my friend Stella, who showed me how to make a warped square (or hypar) with glass beads.  Her sister Paula showed me a picture of a beautiful beaded necklace she found in a book.  This awakened my interest in geometric beadwork and I started beading triangles and warped squares.  From there, I thought about how I could assemble them into some type of structure and the idea for “The Fabric of Life” was born.  This sculpture grew quite organically and I hope you will follow along as I post updates of the piece in progress.

With thanks to all the beaders who have come before me, starting with Stella Shepard and Paula Altmaier, and also Judy Walker, Jean Power, Diane Fitzgerald and Kate McKinnon, just to name a few.
