Dori Csengeri

If you love bead embroidery, you'll love seeing this couture designer's jewelry. She uses a mixture of beads, cabochons, crystals, and trim to create beautifully spiralled designs. Her range includes bracelets, necklaces, earrrings, and also purses. While I have had her listed under "Artist's Galleries" (aka Eye Candy), unbeknownst to me she has more than one website. To see her original website "Dazzle and Shimmer" click on the title above. To see her namesake site - "Dori Csengeri.com" click HERE. To see yet a third website, "Ella" click HERE. Thank you Mimi for sharing the links!

The Work of Jennifer Maestre

When is a bead not a bead? When it's a pencil. Except in the case of Jennifer Maestre's work. In that case, a pencil is a bead! To see this wonderfully talented artist's work, click on the title above. And by the way, for those of you who love hummingbirds, be sure to check out Jennifer's hummingbird houses. What a treat! (PS - If you click on the image, right, you'll transfer to her etsy site!)
