A common theme of using a great variety of color, size, and texture runs through much of my work. This variety does not come easy whether knitting an art scarf or beading a necklace. This is a typical lap tray arranged for beading a particular color scheme. Once I have selected and arranged a whole tray like this I try to complete several projects with the color scheme, i.e. a lariat, short bead set and some earrings. I select my beads as I string each piece, creating the rhythmic and spontaneous creation. Even as I repeat color schemes each is unique.
