FASHION COLORWORKS 2017 BEADING CONTEST. JURORS
In 2008 in Washington and in 2014 in New York City Miho held solo exhibitions. The exhibition by six modern Japanese artists took place in several cities in Japan in 2016, they are known as having "God hands" beyond human hand technique, and Miho is one of them. In October 2015, she was introduced as one of the "100 great women in Japan" by ROLA Magazine.
Now Olga brings to life different ideas - creates handbags, belts, necklaces, and a special thrill is caused by unique materials - small beads 15/0, Czech charlotte beads, natural stones, silk, antique beads and vintage clasps and buckles. Olga says that the beadwork should not shout but whisper, and that sound should be heard. Passing by - something caught your eye - go back - fell in love for life. Olga often takes part in Russian and international exhibitions and competitions. Preparing for them makes her entire creative potential work. Olga has been a winner of "Bead Dreams" three times, every year she participates in the Battle of BeadSmith. Olga's dream is to write a book where she could share her skills with other beadworkers.
In 1987, she started her own business, Made for Movement, creating costumes for competitive Ballroom Dancers. She discovered beadweaving in 2007, and fell instantly in love. Her work has been published in Bead & Button, Perl'fection Digital Beading Magazine, Showcase 500 Beaded Jewelry, and in 2014, Marcia DeCoster Presents. She has won numerous awards for her beadwork, most notably a second place ribbon in the 2013 Bead Dreams Seed Bead category, and a 2nd and 1st place ribbon in 2014 and 2015, in the Ms. Maddie’s Fabulous Florals.
Many hours are dedicated to the study and mastery of beadwork exploration. Interactive narratives, surprising interiors, unique colorways, and tactility attained from multiple layers best describe her work. Eva Maria's business services and corporate training consultancy is integrated and enhanced through the process of her artistic expression. Her work has been featured and published in leading trade magazines.
Quote: "When I'm not beading, I'm sleeping." - Eva Maria Keiser
From that point on she set out to learn as many beadwork techniques as she could find. She fell in love with bead embroidery and throughout the years developed her jewelry designs to incorporate bead embroidery with different bead weaving techniques. Her designs are contemporary using old traditional techniques. Her work has been published in "Flatwork" by Nicole Campanella and in Issue 23, January 2011 of "Making Jewellery".
