For the “Hands On Houston” event at the Center for Contemporary Craft on the first Saturday of April, I lead the activity assisted by Houston Bead Society. The theme was Zulu Love Beads. While the activity itself wasn’t quite so ambitious, we did have samples of love bead messages as well as ongoing demonstrations on their construction.
The colors used to create the messages are very basic; red, blue, green, white, etc. I was very taken with those colors as they are very infrequently used by most beaders. I decided those colors would be perfect for a piece of loomwork. I liked the result very much and the button was a perfect find.
