“Habitat” beaded mosaic box by Gayle H. Seely

 

 

The ancient methods of mosaic and beading are combined with fresh, modern energy and emotions to create intricate, colorful boxes of delight.

 

 

 

 

“Take a moment to discover the peace of mind to be found in these delicate expressions of love and happiness.” –Gayle H. Seely

 

“Freedom” beaded box by Gayle H. Seely, 2017.

 

 

“Gayle’s  artwork is not passive: it directly challenges the façade of pretense and completely eradicates narratives bound in familiar human patterns. She beautifully reshapes living things and elements, interweaving them with our individual stories and understandings in order to create a delightfully fresh arrival to a place once unknown.” Tina Miller Anders, art patron, Fairweather House and Gallery.

Seed pearl box

 

Gayle’s boxes, created in hand applied seed pearls, and decorated with translucent agates, micro river stones, often studded in gemstones, are set as a picture within a story. The underside of each unique box is decorated in a companion work of art with  seed pearls.

 

“Thanks for your all help promoting my work and encouraging my development.”
Sincerely, Gayle H. Seely, February 2018
