emubeads: a local artist/craftswoman

We've been doing a lot more video production over this last year or so. Here are two we made this year with Michele Bevis for her work: emubeads.
She is an extraordinary craftswoman, who constantly pushes herself to explore and experiment. You might like to watch the short promo piece we did:

Then if you want to learn more and hear Michele's musings as she works (I highly recommend that), here is a longer piece that takes you through the whole process of making a bead:

And to finish off, here are a couple of photos of a necklace Michele created for a client from South Australia. She frequently does special commissions as well as running Re-vamp workshops for groups (usually women) where you bring current necklaces, beads and jewellery and revamp them with Michele's unique beads and advice.

Emu Beads

The lovely Michele of Emu Beads asked us to photograph her at work making beads as she needed some photos for an article that was appearing in a British magazine. This evolved into some very enjoyable hours, not only photographing her, but her most special beads and necklaces. We loved lighting them up to reveal the fire within and the intricate details of coloured glass, tiny bubbles, metal threads and foils - all combined with exquisite artistry!
