Tiny Treasures to Behold

Today I organized a trip off Island and into Savannah to see a small exhibit of beading by the artists in the Coastal Beading Society.  This group of artists are inspiring in their artfulness and their patience.  Imagine the hours it took to make these creations.

This ensemble just made me happy!  Imagine how it would look on your atypical little black dress!

For the more tailored look, this necklace with its cool symmetry would kick up any traditional outfit.

How about a summer evening in a flirty dress with this piece?  To me, it is wearable art!

I can imagine trying my hand (pun intended) on a bracelet like this.  The flat weave of beads imitation the scarf, truly appealed to me.

I was charmed by this collection, but the techniques used are well beyond my skill set.

I really want to try some of these flat woven bracelets.

Maybe, the sculptural types can be learned after mastering the simple woven ones?

Most of the jewelry was for sale and the prices so reasonable when you consider the time and creativity.

There are so many things I want to accomplish in 2017.  Do I dare add learning a new beading technique to the list?  It is so far from my other objectives, and yet I think there might be a soothing peacefulness to working with these tiny treasures.

 

After the exhibit, we wandered up to The Gryphon Tea Room on Bull Street.  A repurposed pharmacy from 1900 is the perfect place to meet with friends for a splendid pot of tea and delicious sandwich or soup and salad!

 

Happy New Year with hopes for an adventuresome year ahead.

    Wow, these are truly works of art. I simply don’t have the patience or dexterity to accomplish something like this. Nice that one can purchase such art if one cannot make it themselves! 🙂
    Thanks for sharing.
