Over this past weekend we traveled to Buffalo to visit family and especially two adorable grandchildren. I have posted my Buffalo bead above since it is was originally inspired by a piece I made for my youngest grandson called Buffalo Farm House to kind of unite his city life and our country life. I carved all the farm figures out of wood and then had the Buffalo on the roof of the house. Since I liked the Buffalo so much I made a mold from it and then roughly cast the bead and then carved a few more details so that it would be three dimensional. And best of all I sold two of these beads right before the trip to a Buffalo beader. Coincidences are such fun.
And this bracelet above is also about Buffalo since I made it in the car on the way over and now am donating it to the Westminster PreSchool Annual fundraiser. And those gorgeous blue green turquoise beads are ones I bought in NYC at the Whole Bead Show.
