Inspiration Monday: Olga Orlova Masterful Beadwork Artist


 
 

In my spare time I love browsing the internet, especially pinterest and fuel my inspiration. That's how I happened upon master extraordinaire Olga Orlova. And I was mesmerized because her beadwork is stunning and not something you can see every day.





In my pursuit to find out more about Olga's work I found out that she is a native of Russia and lives in St. Petersburg. Being raised in a culture-enhancing and enriching household, among art books, museums and exhibitions, she had a steadfast path to becoming an artist herself. She employs ancient embroidery techniques combining silk embroidery, gold-work embroidery, pearl and bead sewing. Her embroidery has the quality of a priceless painting. The usual time she needs to create a piece of artful beadwork is two months and her palette includes jewelry, handbags, purses, dolls and icons.



To learn more about Olga and her work firsthand, read this article.
