“The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” Marcel Proust

“He paints like a man going over the top of a hill, singing.” THE ART SPIRIT Robert Henri

“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

Here is the quote I shared in my artist talk. It is from Concerning the Spiritual in Art by Wassily Kandinsky. –Gayle H. Seely

“Colour is a power which directly influences the soul. Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the hammers, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand which plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.”



Gayle H. Seely offers a personal one-to-one time with an art patron during the opening of COLOR IT FALL, an exhibition at Fairweather’s through Sept. 30th.

Featured in the display cabinet, found for Fairweather’s by artist Paul Brent, seed pearl mosaics by Gayle H. Seely,  vintage jewelry by Renee Hafeman, beaded  cuffs by Elaine Sawyer and leather purses by Luans Leathers.

Artist statement:
“One bead at a time, continuing the ancient process of creation – layering multiple parts into a unified whole. Allowing the flow of colors, shapes and textures to combine with inner thoughts, feelings and desires to create meaningful expressions. Each box covered in agates, beads and trinkets wrapping around the sides and back. A joyful treasure to behold.” Gayle H. Seely

Art Review:
“Beading is an ancient process of creation, allowing colors, shapes and textures to combine with inner thoughts and feelings to create external meaningful expressions. All you need to know is where to put the next bead.” Tina Miller
