Bead Weaving, Soutache
My name is Miriam Shimon and I'm a bead artist originally from Denmark, but living in Israel for the last many years. I've always been creative and involved with art but beads and jewelry took my fancy 8 years ago and this is my main occupation today,- mainly teaching the many wonderful ways to create colorful art with glass beads, soutache, crystals, silver and gold.
My work has been featured in numerous magazines around the world and my work has won several awards. However, my priority love is still creating unique one of a kind pieces, each individually crafted and with its own soul.
