I met a really nice lady the other day over the phone who was looking for old time color seed beads. She explained what colors she needed and went into a description of how they were used. I had no idea in my mind the beautiful pottery she creates that incorporates seed beads. You have to see this for yourself to get the picture. I have never in my life witnessed such beautiful art using seed beads that was not on buckskin.
Here are a few examples of these wonderful works of art.
Platters come with a stand for mounting on the wall or a stand with legs to display upright. They also look great laying flat in the center of a table. The intricate designs are created by inlaying thousands of glass European beads with a small needle tool, one at a time. Platters shown are 22″ – 29″ in diameter but can be made up to 38″ in diameter.
Segmented wood turnings, some are inlayed with as many as 60,000 European glass beads placed one at a time. Only the natural colors of the woods are used.
