Metal Beads as seen in Stringing Fall 2014





For the last week or so, I have been working on making some more of the kind of metal beads that are featured in the current issue of Stringing Magazine in the Best New Beads section.  I love working with metal because it is so pliable, beautiful and immediate.   Today I am sharing some of my very  newest metal beads which are now in my Etsy shop.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look at my new copper beads.
Have a great day!!
Mary

  7. I love this new direction for your metalwork-- especially the corrugated bead with solder. So different from what anyone else is doing-- you are really carving out new territory and I can't wait to see what else you come up with!
