June Frances Trunk Show

10/13/2017 - 10/15/2017

June Frances Adornments will be holding a Trunk Show at BDC this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

June has an extensive background in many artistic mediums, but beading has given her the opportunity to create something unique to her: Cording.

In her own words:

Artist’s Statement

“I have sensed the colors, texture, and vibrancy found in nature and the physical world since I was a young girl, growing up in a very artistic family.

My avenues of artistic expression included bead work, (both as sculpture and jewelry), painting, dioramas, collage, found art sculpture, art rocks, and recycled clothing embellishment.

In the early 1980’s I was inspired by a French Canadian man named Papillion.  His beaded art featured extraordinary color combinations, using the peyote stitch.  I have discovered new techniques as well, as the years passed, studying with Nan C Meinhart to learn both right-angle bead weaving and  N’dbele, an African bead art.

For the past dozen or so years, I have been making my own cording which I use to create necklaces that become unique, one-of- a-kind pieces.  These necklaces have received wide spread appreciation and are much loved by their owners.

I am now in my 75th year, and my eyes are not what they once were, so I am passing on most of my carefully selected beads.  I hope you find many treasures to enjoy in the varied stock from my delightful years of beading art.”
