About this design:

The elongated bone beads in this piece were a gift. When I received them, they seemed so folksy and primitive--so _not_ my style I couldn't imagine what I'd do with them.

Fast forward 18 months. I came upon them again and this time it was the beads' stark graphic quality that jumped out at me -- which is very, very much my style!

Case in point that it is all in how you look at things. :-)


Hollow bone tubes, onyx rounds and base metal stamped discs.

    & now they look oh-so-stylish! fantastic – wasn’t this ‘primitive’ style of simple, graphic expression an inspiration for modern design?
