Like many other artists who work in beading, Robyn Delaronde is not intimidated by the challenge of different shapes. This 1996 beaded vase is a striking example. Nonetheless, its motif recalls those produced at the turn of the century. Beaded vases were designed to meet Euro-Canadian demand. They were intended to be placed in a living room as conversation pieces.
