His current work "draws inspiration from many diverse cultures such as Tibetan prayer wheels, ancient writing and Celtic designs," to name a few. As Brad points out, "in most parts of the world, beads hold a great spiritual and cultural significance. I have tried to hold the viewer’s attention on a very small object by instilling some of this spirituality and mystery into my work. I view each piece as a miniature sculpture that retains its core function as a bead."
