Sterling Beaded Tumbleweed #3 (at right)

520.00

Beaded Tumbleweeds are some of the most difficult and time-consuming structures I make. Each is one of a kind and asymmetrical - imperfectly spherical, you might say. 

The process begins with a certain length of sterling silver rectangle wire, which I shape by hand into a sort of spherical structure. After soldering the structure in a number of places to make it firm, I bead first the outsides and then the insides, securing the beads one by one.  It's mostly a meditative process (with a few moments of frustration here and there, as needles keep breaking and threads tangle). 

Only one Tumbleweed like this one is in stock, ready to ship. If you try to order it, only to receive a message saying that it is "out of stock," then it has already been sold. If you don't mind waiting 4 weeks for delivery, I will make you one of the same general size, but the shape will differ somewhat.

Tumbleweed shown here (at right in first image), about 1 1/4" x 1 1/4".
