A New Medium

To say I’ve been busy is an understatement, particularly over the past two months or so. I enjoy being busy, and it pays to stay organized. Yes, it does.

Last year, I purchased many pounds of locally made (Pensacola, Florida) glass beads. The artist considered them “seconds,” but I considered them a bonanza of hundreds of perfect and unique pieces of art.

At the time I purchased them, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. But it took a lot of sorting and selecting for this piece of art I had in mind. In fact, it took months of putting this bead in that pile and that bead in this pile.

Once I had the beads culled, it was time to count them out, for the art work I designed called for a specific number of beads. That done, it was – finally – time to create my piece.

Carefully aligning each bead in group, I capped and wire wrapped each one, paying specific attention to how each bead looked against its neighbor.

Months of work led to my final piece: A wall rosary. It’s substantial and hefty, and a little more than three feet long.

I am now in my studio creating another one, and will be offering it for sale when it’s completed. Of course, as with much of my art, this will be a one-of-a-kind work.
