It was my birthday on Tuesday, and to celebrate I have bought myself two new Bower Beads: a kookaburra and thylacine stripes. These are designed by Tasmanian jeweller Ruth Waterhouse. I love Ruth's designs and have a few of her pieces. I purchased the beads at Sargisons in Hobart.
This photo shows the detail on the back of the kookaburra. So beautiful! I am loving these beads: the detail, the weight of them and how they feel on my wrist. Delicious.
