Juried Shows, Exhibits, and Publications » Convergence: Contemporary Jewelry Design with Art-Glass Beads (2009)

Yellowstone is a story piece necklace created with chain maille and art-glass beads. It is built around the themes of "Convergence" which required the artists to include one or more of the four elements: earth, wind, fire and water. Telling the story of Yellowstone after a major burn, and moving from the flames and water (chain maille) to the charred rocks and cloud bead clasp, the seeds released by the burn burst into masses of flowers found in the valleys of Yellowstone. Collaborators Kathy Petersen and Susan Matych-Hager are pleased to be included in this prestigious exhibit sponsored by the International Society of Glass Beadmakers and Bead and Button Magazine.
