SHOWCASE 500 BEADED JEWELRY by RAY HEMACHANDRA
In my opinion this is an absolutely gorgeous gallery book. You won't be disappointed at all as you turn the pages. The photography of each piece of jewelry is stunning. RAY HEMACHANDRA is author and juror of this amazing publication. He is team lead and business manager for LARK JEWELRY & BEADING. Mr. Hemachandra is an accomplished author and Senior editor of many Brilliant Books, (THE PENLAND BOOK OF GLASS; BEADING WITH WORLD BEADS; MASTERS: POLYMER CLAY, MASTERS: EARTHENWARE, AND MASTERS: ART QUILTS, also several 500 series books).
I was so enthralled by the depth of insight and creativity involved in the creation of each piece of jewelry. The vastness of techniques used to create each piece was mind boggling. You are actually treated to 500 pieces of work created by nearly 300 Artist, (Sherry Serafini, Marcia DeCoster, Diane Fitzgerald, Carol Wilcox Wells, Huib Petersen, Sabine Lippert, Myra E. Schwartz, Judy Mountain, and Wayne Robbins, just to mention a few.) After reviewing this book I was totally inspired. I yearn to one day see one of my creations in such a book as this.
As I said before, you won't be disappointed as you turn the pages of this book. Some words that popped in my head as I browsed the pages was, ambitious, elegant, dramatic, gorgeous, stunning, lavish, vibrant, breath taking, Innovative, artistic, different, and brilliant. I am posting a few random pictures of a few of the pieces. I hope you enjoy viewing them.
Well I am married to a wonderful man. I love designing jewelry. I have been a jewelry artisan for over ten years now.
I also have a great love for animals...Right now I have a 16 year old boston terrier and three boxers. I am also starting this blog site with loads of my jewelry designs and tutorials I have come across in my search to learn and improve on my craft. I would love to hear from fellow beaders. Thanks for stopping by......
