Mixed media textile art beads hand made with Tyvek - aqua, turquoise, sea green, ocean blue, jade, emerald and shimmering gold
I hope you like my mixed media textile art beads Each bead is hand made by me from painted Tyvek which I manipulate with heat to achieve the interesting shapes and textures.

The colours have a sheen to them that reflects the light and each and every bead is one of a kind. No two packets of beads are quite the same. You will receive these actual beads seen here in these photographs…
