PALMLINES

Consisting of small beaded bags that fit in the palm of one’s hand, the “Palmline” collection references a time, before pockets, when people wore pouches or decorative containers around the waist and neck to carry medicines, herbs, scissors, keys and other essential and cherished items. Mine have been used for celebration, healing and commemoration.

This was my first collection, at a time when I had a lovely but limited supply of fleece—and better eyesight for the beadwork!
