BEAD ART WORTH

I am truly grateful and honored that my work is being recognized," says Jody. "Beading comes from my soul. I try to allow each bead to speak through its color, size, shape, and texture. I never draw anything by hand. In the end, these pieces seem to come alive with the natural heartbeat of nature. In addition to my Raised Texture beading I'm offering workshops using my new favorite find - Shibori Silk Ribbon!

OZZIE OPALS

We are Australians who live Down Under and come to the USA several times a year. I fell in love with Opals when I was a young child and did not believe that they were real. We mainly deal in Australian Boulder Opals but also source other opal all over from Australia. The aboriginals used them as a sacred stone and you can understand why when you see them. I have hundreds of opal starting from $30 and each one is uniquely different. A lot of them have been drilled and put on leather so you can wear them straight away which is an added bonus.
