Hands to Work, Heart to God



This project has been around for a long while. It was in response to the hands to work, heart to God prayer that has been going on in my mind. It was present in my mind for a long time so I traced my hand and then beaded it. I must admit that there is another influence here.
Marya of Bead Art has created some wonderful artwork and has made hands in three dimensional form whereas mine is flat.
Celticat This is the link to her work. She is a great bead artist and has started to make glass beads too.
The Bead Art forum on Delphi is also a big influence in my bead art. I love the women there and their inspiration. They have taught me so much and I have had an incredible time learning this amazing art form!

So here is my latest finished project. I do believe that I may have started this almost two years ago but hey, who's counting!?
Cheers, Denise
