Ellen Devens
Beads, beads and more beads, each a world unto itself. The color, texture, richness and quality of antique and vintage glass beads never fail to catch my heart and eye. I have been collecting for a long time. Many were found in the back rooms of NYC importers years ago and others in private collections. 
 
My own collection has overtaken my closets and though they are becoming quite rare, I’m moved to give them a new life that can be shared so I’m incorporating them into objects d’art. Bracelets to adorn oneself and tassels for luck and grace to hang on a doorknob or lamp are each carefully crafted to bring beauty into your life.
