Mary Reynolds is a Southwest Oregon artist living in the scenic Illinois River Valley. She developed a thrill for beads and beading over years of hobby craft. Looking for her niche, she tried working with all types of beads and techniques. In the process, she developed a passion for freeform peyote stitch art made of glass seed beads, into which she incorporates locally crafted handmade art glass beads. Her use of color and embellishment with unique glass, metal, pearls and even shell beads makes each item -- whether jewelry, sculpture or wall art -- a masterpiece.
In addition, Mary became fascinated with the endless patterns used in traditional quilting. She created a series of miniature beaded quilts, each displayed in a shadowbox to enjoy as wall art.
