What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Bead Weaver:

Olesya Bryutova

It’s hard to believe, but accomplished jewelry artist Olesya Bryutova is only 31 years old! A third-generation artist, she grew up surrounded by paintings and sculpture. Although the young Siberian was forced to take a day job, not even that could stem her creativity. Initially inspired by well-known beader Guzel Bakeeva, Bryutova decided to start making her own jewelry designs, and her results are nothing short of amazing.

Not surprisingly, her complex bead weaving efforts have won her some acclaim. With her fondness for dragons and drama, I’m sure Bryutova will be winning competitions for years to come. And with any luck, she’ll be able to quit the day job and focus all her attention on creating magnificent pieces like the ones here.

Check out all of Bryutova’s imaginative designs on her website and on Facebook.

  3. Aside from the staggering craftsmanship, I love the theatricality of these pieces. I’m not convinced they’d be very wearable in everyday life but I find that rather adds to the appeal of them. I love the beetles and the skull pendant collar piece in particular. My youngest son loves the dragons.

  6. I used to go to Olesya’s FB account just to drool over her projects! Luckily I thought to google her name and now I’m here! Couldn’t be more happier. Love, love, love her work! The best in the world. Too bad there’s no tutorial! I’m a beader myself.
