Etruscano

Organic with flash, this set ushers in the Fall and Winter months with a mix of shapes, colors and sizes. Inspired by rustic "found object" bracelets, these beads exude Primitive Chic. Heavily silvering on some beads creates a lovely sparkle and interesting texture. Colors include Olive, Cobalt, Peach, Topaz and Denim. All extra components you see here are included in your bid: 24K gold-dipped, Copper-dipped and Silver-dipped Greek ceramic beads plus various Heishi.

My New Business Card Pic...

...and here's what I wrote about it: This is the picture on my new business cards. The text to the right of the picture looks pretty much like this: Angela Greer Garren Pouring Emotion into Glass Mother, Sculptor, Writer P.O. Box 28, Irvington, IL 62848 www.angelinabeadalina.com Those words on my card, "Celebrating the Beauty of the Human Condition," get as close to a short answer as I think I'm ever going to get. Don't think I don't think about this answer each and every time I make a sculpture that isn't a mask or Buddha of some sort, either. . .because I do. From the very first foray into sculpting the human body, I heard "Put some clothes on them nekid wimmin," snickers, and giggles accompanied by embarrassed eye rolling. Oh, and let's not forget the sideways queries about why it's women and not men in the nude that I sculpt. Alright, you asked for it, gentlemen (and make no mistake, it is usually the men who find this so intriguing): I am a woman, and I love a man. Everything is not about sex. Men are gorgeous to look at, especially a nice strong pair of biceps, but I can't seem to sculpt a male figure and get anything special out of the glass. Women's bodies have more curves, more gracefulness, and I can seem to sculpt a female figure and get something special out of the glass. No, I am not interested in a threesome with another woman and you. . .you can fantasize about that one if you really want, but it doesn't turn my crank. Anyway, I'm a woman. My fantasies are more about well thought out, meaningful surprises and soft looks. Remember that Mars and Venus thing? We're different. Okay, now that we've got that out of the way, let's talk seriously about nakedness and beauty and bodies and art. Once you've spent enough time on earth, you come to realize a few things. Life is about the journey. Love others for who they are, not who they might become. Nature is awe inspiring with her intricacy and universal language. The human body is beautiful in all its different shapes and variations, especially the ones that have been lived in, the ones that exude experience and wisdom and grace. Yes, the bodies that carry the souls with so much humility and grace, those are beautiful bodies to behold. Battle scars don't have to be from bullet wounds, and hearts can be seen even when covered by layers of flesh and bone. A breast cancer survivor once asked me to make a sculpture for her. Sculpting that figure with the reconstructed breast that was smaller than the other because the woman had gained weight since her reconstruction years ago-- that was an honor. She survived, she flourished, and she lives. That's a beauty that reaches beyond the body itself. I used to sculpt goddesses, used to be inspired by myths and religious stories, used to need to read about a goddess and try to understand her before I tried to capture her in glass. Athena, Kali, Gaia, they inspired me to reach toward their greatness and grasp it in the flame. Those were good sculptures for me, but they were another time. Now, I sculpt the human form. Mantras and myths might come with me to the torch, but what inspires me is the form, the curve, the graceful imperfections of the human body. Goddess inspiration comes from the strength and wisdom we percieve in the myths and legends and religions. It strengthens a bit of the soul, somehow. Ah, but the human body does even more. It is us, in all our shapes and forms, that inspires me. We live. We breathe. We laugh. We love. We cry. We hope. We are. It is this human condition that is most beautiful to me.

Beads for a Cure - Sept 2008

I recently reunited with one of the best friends of my life. She had just finished surgery and chemo for breast cancer. What was this? I didn't know what to say. She introduced me to "cancer" up close and personal. I wanted to help, so I created exclusive beads for our Race for a Cure team. I have always steered clear of using pink glass, now I I have many shades of pink! :) We made a web site: http://www.FemmeFus.com I made a video of our story, and we are a Top 10 finalist in the LiveStrong video challenge! (Please see details on our site.) It has been quite a journey...! An amazingly wonderful journey. This gallery contains the "Femme Fus Exclusive" beads. These beads are/were only available via donation to Komen Race for the Cure.
