Wilder’s treasure chest

Dee Wilder’s treasure chest of beads startled me and started me thinking. Dee tries lots of techniques and has a knack for quickly inserting her own voice and style into the process. You can see hints of Grant Diffendaffer, Cynthia Toops, Jeff Dever and others in this box….but only hints.

She swears that even I might be able to loop waxed linen around a big bead like hers. Of course mine would be around a faux stone. Here’s more of Dee’s work.

It’s stormy and rainy in the mountains and the network keeps dropping out. But the wine is holding steady and the ideas are flowing.

          Dee’s work never ceases to amaze me. I have jewelry pieces by her I wear regularly and beads of hers that I just hoard (and will work with, one of these days) because they are so wonderful. I can’t wait to see what paths she takes us down when she returns from this retreat!
