I start each piece by looking at colors and deciding on a palette. Each palette includes beads of different shapes and sizes to add visual appeal to the piece. I then use these tiny elements to the larger complex shapes of the finished piece. What I love about this technique is the challenge of creating shapes and forms that need to be aesthetically pleasing yet mathematically accurate.
The design phase is challenging and the most exciting. I often have a hundred ideas in my mind at a time so filtering out the impractical and allowing those that would result in a perfect piece is an amazing albeit difficult journey.
To achieve a master could take hours or days depending on the “flow of creativity”. Reproduction is an easier process requiring 8 to 12 hours a piece. I currently do not reproduce any design in exactly the same…
