I love my two long strands of red beads I got from Ecuador. I cherish these pieces. I used them as reference for a portrait I worked on years ago. I fell in love with the women of Otavalo and the colorful beads they wore around their neck. I wanted to capture their strength and beauty. I’m not very superstitious but when I wear these strands, I feel very protected by them.
