These shapely complex beads from Dixie103 (Julie) provide a pleasant start to the week. Her husband thought they looked like magic lamps and dubbed them Alladin beads.

The shapes and patterns and muted colors make your eyes dance around to take in all the delightful curves and canes.

Julie is still shy about her work though it’s now her fulltime day job. See what she’s up to (she even posted her first tutorial) on Flickr.

        Julie has absolutely no reason to be shy about her work. Her canes are outstanding, and the variety of bead shapes is wonderful. I had not seen her work before, and I’m especially captivated by her “crewel” canes. Amazing!

          This work is so masterful. I especially love the Jacobean motifs where the color is perfectly yummy!! Why oh why would you not claim your mastery and shout out loud Julie?? Simply beautiful.

            if I could reach right through the computer screen to grab these, they’d be gone in an instant. Playful yet sophisticated, striking color palettes and patterns…absolutely delicious!

                  I don’t believe I have ever come across someone who has mastered caning like Julie. Her work is exquisite! Still trying to figure out how she can cane a round bead with absolutely NO distortions! Amazing!!!!!

                            She’s Julie Dickson from Stoughton, Wisconsin. My friend ran into her selling her lovely polymer at the Mt. Horeb Art Fair. Mystery solved!
