Dimension

17" x 14"

Médium

glass delica beads, nylon thread

Untitled 1 is my first fine art beaded piece, and was born of my desire to explore creating beadwork without the size constraints that comes with making jewellery. The piece itself is comprised of Japanese delica beads in one of my favourite colour combinations, and utilizes both the square stitch and brick stitch in its construction. This piece took between 40-60 hours to create, one bead at a time with two stitches per bead.

As a beadweaver for more than 30 years, I've come to think of this ancient craft as an outlet for my many visual inspirations. From traditional Baltic, Slavic, Scandinavian, Asian and Arabic motifs to the customary patterns of the many Aboriginal Peoples of North America, I revel in the shapes and colours with which we decorate our lives. Growing up near the Great Lakes, I was first introduced to beadwork by the Ojibwe People of that area, with whom I proudly share my heritage. This beautiful melding of history and craftsmanship sparked something in me as a young child, and beadweaving has remained my beloved creative outlet to this day. I am proud to be carrying on the long tradition of beadweaving, and hope to do my part to bring the beauty of this amazing craft into wider contemporary awareness.
