Some other beads in Dan's yard.
Yes, I agree beads are usually (but not always) worn, but he is the beadmaker, so who can argue with him?
In Dan's words: "There is something elusive and fundamental about beads and bead making that can't be more than provisionally defined. I am, however, always interested in other perspectives and experiences."
By the way, Dan says he finds it curious that people ask if the big bead above is carved all the way around. It is.
