Genesis Exhibition

I am participating in the South East Art Society exhibition where the theme is “Genesis”.

Genesis means: the beginning or origin of something

I started out thinking I would do something in relation to the beginnings of glass beads in history.  From Trade Beads to Ancient Roman Glass, I had a lot of fun looking through my History of Beads book.

But in the end I decided that as I was new to the South East, I would share with them the beginnings of my jewellery.  So I created 3 necklaces:

  1. I started collecting beads from op-shop beads
  2. Then I added some of my own glass beads
  3. Now I make all of the beads.

And here they are:
