TERESA SULLIVAN Bead Tapestry and Bead Sculpture
.

HOME

Teresa Sullivan creates intricate sculpture and jewelry using the ancient techniques of bead weaving. In Sullivan's hands, tiny, delicate beads are transformed into bold, dense, self-supporting works. Her narratives reveal her appreciation for the irreverent and the indigenous. She has studied, exhibited, and taught worldwide.
