This piece "BLEU ICE" was the result of play creating the wheel in the centre. The mixture of blues and crystal AB's blended so well from there and I was very pleased with the result. It takes the effect of icicles after a frost.

This was a piece that I created for Create Your Style Competition Australasia. I was fortunate enough to receive eighth prize for it. "Splash" was also a finalist in a European Competition.


I bought the dragonfly piece at the Portobello market in London and I went onto visit Monet's home and the flowers inspired me to make this wonderful piece.


I was lucky enough to visit Capri twice and the Amalfi coast. Whilst on Capri I found this wonderful cameo of the sirens and this was the inspiration for this design. This piece received an Honorary Mention in the Elly Feldman Award at the Bead Society of Victoria Expo 2010
