Artist´s Statement:

Painting with glass is similar to drawing ... it is like the first kiss:quiet, clean, light and it carries within the deepest emotions.
If you like glass, you will love beads, and if you love beads .... hope you will love my Shop ♥

Windows to an unknown World

This bead is inspired by one of the planet's most charismatic creatures:
The Polar Bear.

Somebody posted some pictures from the Polar Bears Site yesterday on FB and they warmed my eyes and my heart.




Did you knew that there are only eight kind of bears around the world? And one of these is the polar bear losing more and more range and territory to the effects of global warming.

We will celebrate soon Earth Day on Tuesday, April 22nd and each of us can play in stopping climate change reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Weather is an interesting phenomenon to teach, experience and watch. I have been teaching geography for a couple of years and children had a lot of ideas how to stop climate change, always wondering how this points of view are changing for so many of us as we grow and become adults.

So ... one of the meanings of an artist is to open the eyes of the viewer to overlooked beauty, and I hope that

this little (oh no, it is not really little ☺) bead

will always remind you to think about these beautiful creatures even if they live so far away from YOU.

"Art is something that makes us more thoughtful and well-rounded humans"
