The winter chill makes these bundled beads look especially right. These babushkas are from France’s Sophie Arzalier (Cristalline) who’s been refining them for several years.
The cane covered beads are built over Ultralight cores and measure 2″ x 1.5″. Some become beads, some rings or brooches that remind us of the traditional folk Russian matryoshka nesting dolls. They’re available through her store. They warm us up.
