Melissa Culyer Beadwork

About the Exhibit & Artist

Melissa Culyer, winner of the 9th annual CCAC Golden Ticket juried exhibition, presents a new body of work, inspired by themes of color and joy. Melissa has been honing her bead embroidery techniques for more than 25 years. Self-taught, she finds inspiration in natural landscapes, memory and color, and incorporates found objects into her designs. Lead glass crystal, natural stone, semi-precious gems, precious metals and thousands of tiny glass seed beads round out her intricate compositions. She enjoys the meditative nature of her art form as she hand-stitches every bead to create one-of-a-kind pieces that vary in pattern, structure, and color.
