Some months ago, I shot a number of extraordinary pieces for Kandra Norsigian, who wanted to submit her work to Lark Book’s upcoming “Showcase 500 Beaded Jewelry: Photographs of Beautiful Contemporary Beadwork,” the newest addition to the prestigious Lark 500 Series. I’m delighted to report that Kandra was notified today that her gorgeous beaded amulet purse was selected for the book.
With good reason. Kandra’s body of work is amazing, and this piece showcases her talents beautifully. It was shot using a Nikon D300 camera and Nikkor 60mm micro lens in my Escondido studio, just north of San Diego.
You can find and pre-order the book, 500 Beaded Jewelry, at Amazon.com.
Kandra’s Beads, which I’ve mentioned in these pages before, is a great bead shop in the heart of Solvang, just off the central California coast, less than an hour north of Santa Barbara. It’s a quaint and beautiful town filled with galleries, antique shops and great restaurants. Kandra’s shop is located at 1539A Mission Drive in Solvang. You can see more of her work in person there or at her website: www.kandrasbeads.com.
Join me in congratulating Kandra! She deserves every accolade she receives!
