Traci Staves & Matthew Springer Show at Stumptown Art Studio
In Beads of the Art, jewelry artist Traci Staves translates her passion using seed beads and other mediums into works of art. “There is something so powerful about these tiny little objects,” says Staves. “Their magic is spellbinding and it can take total controal of one’s mind and soul. Ask any serious beadher and they will tell you it is a passion, an addiction, an obsession.” She explains how she utilizes the three months of glorious inspiration all around to fuel her creative spirit for the next nine months of winter. Staves also loves teaching and sharing her love of creating and making beads with others. Beaded necklace by Traci Staves
