Nancy’s Mystical Beads

Nancy Bariluk-Smith makes many different types of lampwork  jewelry, but her  single beads seem to possess a mystical force.  They appear to have evolved naturally like crystals or pearls.  Or sprung up over night like  mushrooms.  Each containing a universe of it’s own.   Today Mary Muncil wrote on her blog White Feather Farm about a bead that Nancy gave her for her birthday.   She talks about the love that went into  making of the piece.  What a difference it makes when a piece of art reflects the emotions of the artist. Without emotion, it’s just a pretty piece of glass, with emotion, it’s a work of art. 

Nancy is one of the nine artists in the Functional Art Show at the Pig Barn Gallery on Oct 8-9.
