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.
