Captivated by the color and beauty of beads, Melissa Culyer has been honing her bead embroidery techniques for more than 20 years. She finds inspiration in natural landscapes, memory and color, and carefully incorporates found objects into her designs. Lead glass crystal, natural stone, semi-precious gems and thousands of tiny glass seed beads round out her intricate compositions. She enjoys the meditative nature of her art form as she hand-stitches every bead to create one-of-a-kind pieces that vary in pattern, structure, and color.
