I first met bead artist, Teresa Sullivan, a year ago during my trip to Portland for the screening of Handmade Nation. She was wearing one of her amazing beaded pieces (to call it a “necklace” just seems … wrong. It was an art piece wrapped around her neck!). I was astounded by the detail she was able to convey, and the incredible durability of her pieces. I’m thrilled to see this interview with Teresa by another good friend I made on that same trip to Portland, Kim Werker. Not only does she share Teresa’s answers to a handful of thought-provoking questions, but she’s also included a beautiful video by Ian Lucero about Teresa and her work.
