Louise Hill Designs

I just discovered Louis Hill's website and WOW, she has some beautiful pieces! I first saw Louise's beadwork published in Bead and Button magazine. Her Strawberry Dress design, a finalist in the 2003 Bead Dreams competition, was so unusual for a purse, especially with its strand of pearls. The purse has recently been featured in Stampington's magazine "Haute Handbags". Louise was also a finalist in this year's 2006 competition with her "Vitrail Serenade", a beautiful blend of colors and shapes reflected in the centerpiece - a Swarovski Vitrail cabochon. Her newest designs are made with Aiko seed beads and her latest - "Blue Sky as Ocean Blue" - is a wonderful showcase for these beads. Click on the title above to go to her website and follow the link to her portfolio. I've also included a permanent link to her gallery under the "Eye Candy" column. Enjoy!
