From Russia With Talent

Last Saturday, a woman came by the Dixon Chicks table at the TBS Bead Fair to speak with Stephanie and show her some of her jewellery. Her name was Alla and she pulled out bag after bag from her purse in a very Mary Poppinsish manner, chatted a few minutes and then left us with her jewellery while she and her friend went to look around the fair. If I understood correctly, she was here visiting from Minsk, having been here for the Bead Oasis show in March, met Stephanie and has been emailing with her since then, and decided to fly back over just to attend the Bead Fair!!

Stephanie and I and another woman (whose name I didn't catch but who saw the first piece and then couldn't leave before seeing them all) opened each bag and oohed and aahed over the pieces. Each one was even more intricate and beautiful than the one before.

Here are just a few pictures of her fabulous designs:

The white necklace was especially lovely and would look amazing with a wedding dress!!
