LE TRAVAIL DE PERLES DE VERRE
Furniture and sculptures
I find these two sculptures magnificent. They have a naive primitive quality to them and yet surely represent hours and hours of precise, patient, blinding work.

Chair gallery Seven Continents
These chairs are African thrones and are entirely covered in intricate designs made with tiny glass beads. They would make a striking piece in an entry way with a soft spotlight shining down on them. All six pieces are the work of the Yoruba tribe of Nigeria, West Africa.

Harvest Basket and Tribal Magic
This artist had crafted small baskets from glass beads and glass fruits; the smooth interiors of the bowl are perfect foils for the chunky colorful exteriors.
beaded phone...why not?
Of course this is an antique and as such can be transformed as "artistically" as the designer wishes...
