Two Gals From Israel







































I am in constant awe. These two gifted gals, both from Israel are bead weavers. Triz and Smadar challenge our creativity at every turn. Their work is intricate, painstakingly woven together, bead by precious bead and the results are often museum worthy (as I have commented to each of them on more than one occasion). They show us the process, sometimes from beginning to breathtaking end, continually on their blogs. Their life in Israel is clearly reflected in their work, giving us a taste of the depth of their culture and rich heritage. Please, catch your breath and soak it all in. Triz, and Smadar, two gals from Israel. Click on photos to see their Etsy shops and on their names to link to each of their blogs. Thank you, Ladies, for your never ending inspiration!
