The “Beading” Hearts of Adams Street

The “Beading” Hearts of Adams Street is the newest public art installation on Adams Street in Natick Center. Jo LaFalce, who created the hearts, is an artist at “Studios @ 3 Adams.”

Jo received a grant from the Natick Cultural Council which enabled her to create the hearts. The project consists of three large 35” x 30” hearts installed in a 9’ high brick archway on the back of the Fair and Yeager building.

One heart is decorated with vertical rows of 957 multi-colored beads of different shapes and sizes. The second heart is entirely covered with sparkling crystals (too many to count!) of different colors, sizes, and shapes. The third “rainbow” heart is made up of 3,714 tightly-strung pony beads in the color of a rainbow. All three hearts make for a delightful and eye-catching display of spectacular colors!

“The ‘Beading’ Hearts took one year to make and it was truly a labor of love. I hope it brings a smile to everyone who sees it!”
