Here is the second shot of small parts I’ve just created for my latest set of Recursive Beads. These also will be incorporated into larger beads. I am now layering colors into the parts that will be revealed in the finished bead. As I move through the process the forms develop, and there are never two exactly alike. Though these are intended to be parts of finished beads, I won’t be able to resist feeding their forms back into the process by using them as sculpture tools, so that they modify other developing forms.
