It is really refreshing to come across a talented bead embroidery artist who is prepared to do something different. Lithuanian Rasa Vilčinskaitė of RasaVil Jewelry on Etsy has a modern take on traditional bead embroidery. Her bead embroidered statement necklaces are outstanding and look stunning when teamed with neutral colored outfits. Some even look like they are part of the dress.
She does use some popular shapes but she also creates some innovative shapes. Many of her designs are geometric and perhaps even architectural in some respects. Rasa is an artist which is evident with her strong sense of color and patterns.
Bead embroidery is clearly her passion. She prefers to make one of a kind pieces but buckles when people do ask her to recreate a design they like! Two of her necklaces have appeared in an Italian exhibition.
She also makes bead embroidered anklets and her head pieces are popular too.
Rasa is also on Facebook.
