4th Friday Prescott Art Walk
Joyce Ash – Beader
I am a native Oregonian growing up on the beautiful Oregon Coast, but now living full time in Arizona, and fortunate enough to spend our summers in Prescott.
I am primarily a self-taught beader, but have taken some classes along the way. I have always done some sort of hand craft since I was five years old, when my grandmother taught me to quilt. Over the last 67 years since then, I have learned knitting, crochet, cross stitch, stained glass, pastel, and oil painting, and for the last 8 years…beading.
My beading has been shown in several art shown in the valley. I have won first places at the Glendale Fine Art Show and at the Wickenburg Gold Rush Days. I was also represented at the Red Raven Fine Art Gallery in Salem, Oregon for four years.
There are many types of beading, but my favorite is bead embroidery. You are actually designing original pieces around found objects, such as semi-precious gemstones, fused glass focals, and silk fabrics. The designs are limited only by your own imagination.
This particular piece, featured here, was designed specifically for Prescott.
