Thank you for your patience while we retrieve your images.

I enjoy using childrens' beads, as I find it an unexpected medium that is uniquely suited for portraits of children. It also creates something that children who have worked with the beads, or parents who have vacuumed them up, can appreciate. Although they are meant to be fused together with an iron, I prefer the look of the individual round beads, so I developed my own assembly technique.
