Dragonfly Billabong is a representation of the centrality of water in Australia, a country where droughts feature often with a few “good” years thrown in between in order to make us forget.

Then the contest “Best Dutch Beadworkartist 2014” came up. After finishing my contest necklace “Wild Flower” I felt like finishing that […]
