Contemporary DZI zeye beads

Contemporary DZI zeye beads

I pronounce Dzi, "zeye"...
I am fascinated with the meaning behind the dzi beads. They are believed to be agate stones with powerful blessings to offer the owner. I have sord of made up my own story....perhaps they were beads made thousands of years ago, with glass. And then, they were refound, and named "agate stones" ....hmmm...that's my story, And I am sticking with it...;)
this is where I will show you the dzi beads.

Custom beads are available during the holiday season at my web site; http://www.sheilamolrey.com The bead comes with a pedestal; it can be worn and displayed as a work of art. All beads are signed by me, with a titanium pen.

Geode style

Geode style

Inspiration from my most recent adventure. I LOVE organic!! And, I was not sure what I was going to do with Andrew Brown's techniques... Now I keep finding myself spending large portions of the day grinding the glass and ideas are just popping up. Andrew Brown and Harlod Williams Conney are really a pleasure. I am just really thankful for the input (at our class at the ISGB Gathering this summer).. Everything on this page is BORO-silicate...and I am applying these skills to my Soft glass. wonderful things are happening...(8-2007)

Landscape inspired beads

Landscape inspired beads

I love my garden. Everywhere I look there is a rose or a Lilly. Such an inspiration for my glass. I have recently fallen in love with murrini, flower cane, and those mixed together on a bead (all over again). I can paint flowers, as if it was paint. Things are really melting together nice. Ideas are evolving and I am a little bit more normal than I thought. Maybe the concept, the inner emotion could be received thru visual beauty. Maybe the "story" isn't so important....ah! who am I kidding? Art about art continues....so many artists have painted flowers. Nobody can call it "theirs!" Everybody is dead so, I guess nothing has to be dead. Freedom to celebrate art. This is a chance of a life time. A Modern philosophy of thought....hm!

Loren Stump class stuff...

As I enter into having a career in art, I am continuing my education with a number of talented artists. Loren is the most important for my future at this point. I plan making many murrinies. That will some day be my "product line". These are a number of things made in my 2nd class with him.
Enjoy!

More Odalisque...

More Odalisque...

Keeping up with the progress...
These figures have undercuts around them that I am very much proud of. I am seeing the progress in my work I have been looking for. That feels good.
I am making my beads stand now. I absolutley am all for a standing bead!
Most of the beads I buy can stand too. I have a JC bead, Angie bead, Mr. Smiley bead, Kristen at Genesee bead...Yup! And they all stand. So I know I am not the only one that appreciates that. A worry bead in your pocket, or right there in front of you...facing "that" direction.

Murrini beads! Many beads of People Murrini and more...

Murrini beads! Many beads of People Murrini and more...

Many pieces from Spring 2008 with murrini. It is not about being pretty. It is about having meaning. I seperate the "pretty" from the bead sometimes, and that is odd to some people; fascinating to others. (the subjective thing...)
I personally have always had an attraction to the RAW free flow of materials, combined with universal references...
stories and real life events inspire me; symbolism and figures...

The Goddesses

The Goddesses

I really enjoy using my shorts to create cane to make flowers and latticino. After studying with Loren Stump, I know many ways to do this. I am using the cane to make landscapes that are dream-like. And the Goddess; My favorite relief to create.
(August 2007)
Peace.

The hippie chick!

The hippie chick!

Being a hippie...It has a fun "style". I really want to try out tye dyes with glass. We'll see. I made some dot beads that looked really cool. I thought, that looks kinda like a tye dye! So, why not? Then it became more about NOT burnnig the skin or the shirt. Building up or reducing...And, using my murrini. I see what Loren Stump was saying..."Before you know it murrinies were everywhere!"
(Don't worry Loren. She is crack free and introduced two times! And! No wafting! ;))
Peace!

Thank you for Visiting my gallery! I am very excited to show my work here. If not for websites, I would have been a closet Artist forever. Art is a passion to many people, and I am one of them. I am so flattered to be at a site with so many talented people. Thank you for the moment.
