10 years ago I was busy working towards my 2012 SALA exhibition “10,000 Red Glass Beads.” I was also busy with a 3 year old daughter and being pregnant. I ended up making 10,000 red glass beads using only one shade of red. It was an incredibly rewarding exhibition, and I learned a lot about myself in the process of putting it together. Fast forward 10 years and I am busy working on my 2022 SALA exhibition. It will be held in a church, and is inspired by the stained glass windows featuring angels with red wings! So, for this exhibition, every bead will need to feature some red! There are so many shades of red that I can use, and I am excited to start making beads. I have set a goal of making 1,000 glass beads this time! Can’t wait to see where this all leads.
