..."beaded art through the eyes of the beholder".

The FRENCH QUARTER's front door is now open!

Marie~France Bowers, French oil painter, and Dini Alves, a "bead-a-holic" from Oregon, have combined talents to create these little mini-art-delicacies. The "Beaded Iris" can be hung on the wall or can sit on a small easel on a coffee table. It's uniqueness will be sure to be a conversation piece!

THE JOURNEY: this little gem started in Marie~France's studio in her Pahrump, Nevada home in the desert. Then it was mailed to Dini's studio in the forests of southern Oregon. With the unique beadweaving added, the total concept was born. It is a 6X8 canvas.

...and it SOLD within less than 24 hours of posting it on Etsy!!!!
This is truly an OOAK (one-of-a-kind) venture, with more to come very soon ~ we hope you enjoy!
