Beaded Cane Progress Report

It's coming along, slow but sure. It's a much more meditative process than even regular beading, which is pretty contemplative on its own. I think because I want to only include symbols of things which mean something to me, things which have a certain amount of power in my life. I am finding that even if the symbol in my head is translated rather poorly to a beaded representation it still retains its power for me. The symbols feel relatively primitive and oddly powerful. This process has been more about interior progress than exterior, and that's okay.
