Masterpiece Beadwork Jewelry by Ann Braginsky

By on Tuesday, January 06, 2015 9 Comments

One jawdroppingly good master beader is Ann Braginsky or more accurately in Russian, Anna Braginskaya. She says beads are, "The language of art, which I chose (or it chose me)".  She is indeed an extraordinary bead artist. Her award winning designs include the downright gorgeous Petrel necklace a vision of beautifully rendered graduated feathers.


Another international competition win included her New Age Valkyrie necklace.



How could anyone top those?  Well, she did with her  Ninth Wave necklace below - this time she placed 1st in the 2013 Battle of the Beadsmith competition.   This is a truly amazing beaded rendition of sea and surf.


I think I am running out of superlatives.  But her other smaller designs are just as wonderful.

  5. OMG! Beyond my wildest dreams. The gradation of colours, the gentle but knock-your-socks-off shapes, the drape and the subtlety are amazing!

    What a great talent!

  7. I'm with Pearl (above). HOW does anyone "see" the finished article before you do it? And then order all the beads to do it? Amazing.
