I have been spending most of my "bead" time preparing for the Muncie gallery, and now my efforts will be directed toward the Indiana State Museum. I have been working on leaf beads again. Although they take a lot of time, they are my favorite beads to make. The leaves are perfect right now....not so delicate, a little tougher, which makes for more texture when electroformed. I've been scouring the yard harvesting before they are gone....my neighbors probably think I'm crazy!
