LE TRAVAIL DES PERLES DE VERRE
I love beads! I really love beads! Especially glass beads. I am always amazed at the amount of work that goes into making some beads. They are tiny little pieces of glass that some superb artist has melted, blown and decorated into a little wonder of a bead; and if the beads are simple, tiny pierced glass specs no larger than a grain of rice, other artists manage to knit, string, sew and basically weave them into something just as extraordinary.
