Czech Bead Necklace: Meeting The Past

 I cre­at­ed this white, red and gold sparkling czech class seed beads neck­lace as I was a school girl, being an Art School stu­dent  just to make a try and to par­tic­i­pate on my very first Fine Art Exibi­cion. From draw­ing the sketch and cal­cu­lat­ing the bead­ing sheems to enjoy the mag­ic of forms, play­ing with struc­tures, let­ting the imag­i­na­tion work…  That was fun!
Years passed — and now I have the beads on my work table again. That is a work I real­ly love to do — I enjoy the mag­ic of the colours and nat­ur­al shades  of gen­uine gem­stones beads.  And the care­ful­ly get­h­ear­ing of tiny beads on a silk cord feels just like some kind of med­i­ta­tion to me. That is also kind of re-con­nect­ing me with the nature in some very spe­cial way.
I believe, that is where the Wood­lan­ders rooth…
