I was looking for beaded heart tutorials when I stumbled about Italian designer, Natalia's lovely design shown above.  That led me to the rest of her shop, nataliasavastanoart which is filled with a lovely collection of tutorials. 

I particularly love her sunflower pendant tutorial which is the best I have come across in beadwork so far. Also notable are her crosses and her beaded earrings with scatterings of seed beads on the inside.

Natali comes from Salerno, a city with a long history, just south of Naples.  Salerno is a port city on the famed Almafi coast (UNESCO World Heritage Site). She loves this area - the colors and scents are an inspiration for this designer.
