Commisioned sculptor - Gwen Boyle
for Vancouver Chainatown (Keefer and Taylor streets)
Opening - November 2005

Deborah participated in this monumental sculpture by creating 63 jade beads. Ogden Mt. jade from BC's northern interior region was selected for the project. The beads measure 5 7/8" by 2 3/4". Each bead was cut, cored 2 times and milled before the 3 stages of sanding and the final polish. A special milling machine was designed and adapted to existing equipment to ensure consistency with the size and shape of the beads.
