Iluminada, who owns Casa Maynel bead shop in Santo Domingo, contacted me recently to ask if I would allow her to teach my ‘Beloved’ design to her students, offering a generous payment for my license in return. Now I would love to hop on a plane and go visit, but it is a long way from here to there!
Maybe one day, but meanwhile, this was a lovely alternative way to connect with a group of beaders having fun together.
Iluminada sent me these gorgeous photographs of students work and I am just so inspired by the vibrant colourways I had to share them with you too. Each one is beautifully beaded and I love those cute matching earring sets.
Gracias a mis nuevos amigas!
