Calvin Orr Bead Set: Sunny Yard
Calvin Orr Bead Set: Sunny Yard! My bead-dad, Calvin, makes beads almost every day for FUN, and some nights my mom and I like to sit together and sort or colorize them! We'll string sets that we think look pretty, and it's very relaxing and creative to play with the beads!
- 5 Handmade lampwork glass beads wound on a mandrel and made one by one!
- Bead sizes ranges from: 14 x 17mm to 15 x 18mm
- Beads total length: 2 3/4"
- Beads are annealed in a digitally controlled kiln for durability.
- Made in Aiea, Hawaii.
Calvin Orr's beads are one-of-kind, made in the "heat" of the moment. His artistic expression is unmanaged and free-flowing, so we never know what he'll make, or when! I've known him since I was 26, and I'm still constantly surprised by his newest creations! A true artist, he's inspired by everything going around him and he focuses on creating and experimenting! My mom and I met Calvin at a bead show in San Francisco in 1997. They fell in love, he moved to Hawaii and they've been together as long as our bead store! I'm going to share his beads with the world. Luckily, I have access to his stash after Sunday dinners, so I get to feature them here! Please enjoy!
