About the Bead: "The sun, to me, means growth, warmth, and happiness. People, like all other living things, need the sun to grow big and strong. Let this bead be a reminder that while the sky might seem gray right now, tomorrow is another day and another chance for the sun to shine!" – Audra Delashmutt, bead artist
