Life is so strange.
I came to beads by way lots of crafty pursuits. I've pretty much stuck to jewelry and the occasional keyring. And for the longest time I was completely and totally uninterested in seed beads and beadweaving.
A love of beads became a love of jewelry became a love of wearable art.
Then a couple years ago I saw an exhibit at a museum focusing on paintings done with seedbeads. My first impluse was to translate that into something wearable.
And I did.
Now things come full circle and my attention turns again to art that is not meant to be worn. What will come of it I don't know.
