beaded star

Beading takes a long time. I have much admiration for all those who bead in our communities and creating some pretty amazing pieces of art.

I started this back at the end of September. I wanted to work with porcupine quills and beads. The canvas is painted copper to represent water and to honour this precious element.

Over the years, I have come to understand the significance of stars as mythology and symbolism in our world. Our ancestors have always looked up to the stars with wonder, joy, and intelligence. We’ve charted the movement, named, counted, and wished upon stars since we first came into consciousness. We are living on a brilliant planet that is in perfect balance in a vast cosmos.

This beaded star is created in honour of our home.

  1. It reminds me of my favorite Unitarian Universalist (UU) hymn– “For the Beauty of the Earth” which goes, “For the beauty of the Earth
    For the glory of the skies
    For the love which from our birth
    Over and around us lies–
    Source of all, to thee we raise,
    This our hymn of grateful praise.”
