Judi is a Red Panda Beads customer from the UK. She is a very talented artist and beader. She paints beautiful landscapes....
"I want the finished painting to take me back to a particular
time and place, essentially capturing through paint a fleeting
but significant experience of somewhere."
She sells her work on her website. In addition to landscape paintings she also sells jewelry and has recently added Dragonfly Pins to her inventory. She made the first one for her "Mum", Annie, who introduced Judi into beading. Sadly, as Judi was finishing the first pin in the series, she learned of her mother's recent passing. In her mother's honor, Judi calls the pins, Annie Pins. Judi uses size 11/0 Miyuki Delicas to make these pins. She is currently selling them at various craft fairs, but plans to add them to her website in the weeks to come.
No two Dragonfly Pins are exactly the same.
And, if all that were not enough, in addition to her landscapes and jewelry she also features hand painted lamps on her site in her Lamp Shop. Each lamp is hand painted then fired to fix the pigments to the glass. The lamps measure approx 10cm square by 23cm tall and come with a 9 watt low energy bulb and all the fittings.
This close up shows the quality of her work.
There are even more lamps on her site and each one is a beautiful piece of art!
Thank you Judi for letting me share your beautiful artwork!
