The Beauty of a Broken Bead

October 03, 2013

The ones that didn' make it...  

Broken Beads
Some just don't make it.
Some just don't make it...
 ...into the form that we had planned for them that is.
But what if, in the greater scheme of things, 
the way it's seemingly broken, 
is in fact perfect.
I have saved thousands of broken beads over the years,
beads that didn't make it 
into the form I had planned for them.
I have always had a desire 
to turn them into a fabulous art project.
A beautiful reminder
That everything that is seemingly broken,
 is really just open to another form of being.
With SO much love,
The Door is Open
