Offerings - A Peek Into The Making Of A Hand

When I'm out and about on my walks, I can't help having my eye open for potential materials for my work.  I'm always on the lookout for good branches for Offerings. Sometimes I cut them off trees in our yard that need pruning. 

Then I do this ...

This hand will offer glass beads. I made these of Italian glass, drawing the leaves and flowers with glass "stringers".
