Sally’s Story Ball

Sally’s Ball

It is a story ball. 8″ in diameter. The sphere is a truncated icosahedron. The surface symbols are the representations of the life and times of the person it is made for. The designs are drawn on the surface and then beaded in colors chosen by the client. Each symbol is about relationships and maybe achievements or favorite things. Special people, dates, locations, all come together here.  The background of this ball is done in over lapping circles that compliment the energy of the person.

I’ve recently finished work on a rose. The color gives this work an unearthly glow and the shading of each petal provides the depth to fool the eye. The finished work is framed under glass and will be on display at several shows this year.


If you have any questions about my artwork, please do not hesitate to call or email me. I hope you are all being well and enjoying your summer.

A new beginning

I have recently moved from my mountain home in Jackson Hole, Wyoming to the verdant, wave washed shores of Eastsound, Washington. I am currently working to get pictures of my newest work up here on this blog. Please feel free to contact me with questions.

Be well,
