Chevy Chase, MD
With an eye toward a particular design, tiny glass beads, semi-precious stones and other objects are selected to achieve an optimal palette of hues, textures and finishes. Elements are then hand sewn, one bead at a time, using stitches with roots in ancient times. At times, the beads take geometric forms; at times, they wander in a freeform, seemingly random manner. The end product melds color, tone and texture, achieved with an eye toward the elegant, the unusual and, on occasion the quirky.
