During a recent stint of workshops in Mullewa, I showed the ladies how to create their own beads using images of their artworks.  These are so incredibly special and will be produced by the ladies to sell at the Womens Art Centre.  This will in turn, enable them to purchase more supplies so they can continue to create more incredible polymer clay jewellery.  I really love the concept of these and am so proud of the ladies.  The blurb for each bead is below the image itself.  Thanks to the ladies for allowing me to share the images and stories for these pieces.
Story:  Mass rock was made out of
a big rock. The people used to live at the Common in Mullewa years ago and the
priest used to say Mass every Sunday. Artist:  Barbara Comeagain.  Bead created by myself.  Barb unfortunately missed the session so the ladies will be teaching her how to create these gorgeous beads.  

Story:  The hills, the waterholes,
and the trees in the bush.  Artist:  Barbara Comeagain.  Bead created by myself.  Barb unfortunately missed the session so the ladies will be teaching her how to create these gorgeous beads.  

Story:  My Mum and Dad and their
eight children. The green are the boys and the yellow are the girls.   Artist: Wendy Jackamarra.  Bead created by Wendy herself.  This was her very first attempt.

Story:  This is the Rabbit Proof
Fence. The circles are some of the stations, some people sitting around at
dinner, camp cooking kangaroo stew and damper. There are sand hills and rocky
places along the Rabbit Proof Fence, and all the animal tracks up and down the
fence.  Artist:  Susan Merry.  Bead created by Susan herself.  This was her first attempt.
