The article focuses on the use of beads as embellishment with reference to the works of several artists who participated in the exhibition "Pure Vision" at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center and Gallery in Kansas, at the Rochester Art Center in New York and at Watkins Gallery in Winona, Minnesota. Marna Goldstein Brauner added beads to printing on antique fabrics and clothing. Meanwhile, Ann Bailey transformed her bead-embellished gloves into treasured relics reflecting the duality of male and female. Painter Jennie McDade, on the other hand, added seed beads to her painting with oils on unstretched canvas.
