Featured Designer: Glenda of Dax Designs

As I was looking through blogs and etsy sites this week, there was one particular design that stood out among the rest. I'm not sure if it was The colors, the name of the piece or the dangles that roped me in!!

This week's featured designer is Glenda of Dax Designs. As her profile states, she makes award-winning beadweaving jewellery on the Bellarine Peninsula in Australia. She uses beads and other objects collected as she travels throughout Australia and overseas.

A description of this fabulous "Sunset Sea Choker" reads: handwoven choker is a Bloodstone cabachon of deep sea green with red highlights.

The cabochon appears to float on a handwoven collar of shimmering sea green, jade and red seed beads, featuring green freshwater pearls and a jade bead closure. WOW, how cool is this!?

I've included a couple other pieces of Glenda's that I just think are perfect and want to thank her for allowing me to feature her work here today.

THANK YOU!

Lovely work...

I always find this kind of work very impressive...I've tried it myself and two half finished bracelets...what does that tell you...I don't have the patients for it... :0) So I really appreciate the work of those who can...

Cheers
