Toney Teague's Profile
One of my earliest memories involves spending hours sifting through the costume jewelry in my mother’s jewelry box. I especially remember an iridescent teal brooch. I don’t know what became of it, but I do know some kind of special imprinting went on that left me permanently attracted to anything shiny, blue, or iridescent. I’m like a bird in those tastes, a friend says.
More recently, I saw a bracelet woven entirely from tiny shimmering seed beads. At that point, I had been making jewelry long enough to be aware of the excruciating level of detail and patience such work requires. I remember thinking, “I never want to learn how to do that!” Not long after, I bought a book and taught myself peyote stitch.
And now I find myself here. . . beadbound.
