Feista never has to end…

San Antonio glass artist Nina “Sam” Hibler captures all the fun and excitement of Feista in the brilliant colors and textures of these beads.

I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to watch Sam make some of these beads and then work through the creative process to arrive at this finished piece. From individual beads to a collaborative work or color, texture, movement and sound, Sam brings Fiesta to the wearer of this whimsical necklace. Fiesta San Antonio may only last one week a year but Fiesta by Sam can be worn for a year round party.

It’s too much fun!

Additional examples of Sam’s fabulous work will be on display from May 5 - July 14 at the Heinz History Center in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania and July 26 – September 8 at Evoke Gallery in St. Paul, Minnesota, as part of the MetaMorphosis Exhibit the Life Cycle of a Glass bead. The MetaMorphosis Exhibit is sponsored by the International Society of Glass Beadmakers (ISGB).
