Got a note from Susan Fields, who has attended our bead meetings, that this work of hers is being installed in the show "Outlandish" at the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek, California. The show opens on July 7, with a reception from 6 - 8 and stays up until September 4. She calls these "Beaded Rocks" and I love them! I had seen individual rocks in her studio but this is the first time I have gotten photos of several together. You can see other photos and other works of Susan's at her website. Thanks for the loan of the photo!

Susan said she got the idea from watching Sue Hansen's demonstration of covering tin boxes with beads. Though very different in effect my work with covering twigs with beads was directly influenced by Susan's work on this project.
