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.
