Large strand of bone beads from Indonesia
I am a California mixed media artist and used to have a shop where I sold beads and world textiles. I sell both my work on Etsy along with textiles, jewelry and beads from around the world. This is an example of what I have had in the past. Click on the Visit My Shop button to see what is available now.
This strand of bone beads is from Indonesia, and is 24″ long, and the beads range from 1/2″ to 1 1/2″, and they have large holed. The circular design on the beads wards off the evil eye. There are 30 beads total in the strand.
I have been involved with the arts for many years, starting as a jewelry maker back in the early 70s, adding painting, drawing, and mixed media assemblage in the 80s and 90s. I have continued to challenge and entertain myself with the addition of textiles/fiber to my materials repertoire (creating art felt, silk art yardage, handmade wall pieces, runway/costume pieces, etc.) beginning in the 90s, and carrying through to the present fiber of some sort is often included in my contemporary work. I find fiber and fibrous materials of all sorts to be extremely versatile, and often include it in paintings, sculptures and assemblage work. It is so basic; I find working with it very satisfying.
As a contemporary artist, I hope to create work that is interesting, evocative, communicative, and often, unexpected. I find that I am impacted by world events, politics, the human condition, travel/world cultures, friends, music, nature, foolishness, and personal experiences and interests: all eventually find their way into my art. My work is simply the result of a very busy and curious mind that seldom seems to take a day off.
