Got the box back from Fire Mountain with my seed bead contest finalists and finally got around to unpacking it. Was surprised how glad I was to see this piece back home. I put it up on the special shelf and every time my eye wanders in that direction I get a good feeling. I am thankful I was able to make the piece and I am glad it has been appreciated by someone else. Still I wish that in the spaces between the beads were the words spoken as others looked at the piece. Will keep it for the Gualala Art Festival of Trees which is not all that far away. Maybe then I can see how others see the work.
