The Portal pieces came from a desire to push myself, past my own comforts. And to expand my craft. This work took me over 70 hours to complete, hand stitching one bead at a time. It was a labor of love and born from a place of looking inward and trusting the process. May they be a reminder to keep moving forward, to offer yourself curiosity about what’s next, and to trust whatever may come -knowing you are headed in the right direction in your life.
