Private collection the artist

Beads stitched onto leather and cloth.

“Dancing in the Sun” speaks of the glory of life. The sun gives us life, and life is a happy dance. On display, the piece shows the colors and designs of the sun. Put the piece on, and the wearer becomes the energy of the sun, with the sun’s rays spinning around and radiating from that central energy source.
