May Bead of the Month – The Friendly Alien bead reminds you that you have friends everywhere!
About the Bead: “When I think of what is out there, I’m always reminded of the movie Contact and the quote, ‘The universe is a pretty big place. If it's just us, seems like an awful waste of space.’ I like to imagine that if we did meet one of our universe neighbors, they would think the same.” – Maureen Henriques, bead artist
The bead features a friendly alien on one side and his spaceship on the other side!
