Julia Pfeifer Collection
PO Box 1761
Ojai, CA 93024
As a master beadweaver and designer of distinctive beaded art wear, Julia Pfeifer has perfected a wide variety of techniques. She has concentrated her dexterity on one of the most intricate of beadweaving mediums, microbeading. Each antique Italian bead is smaller than the head of a pin (18-20 ott), enabling Julia to design and render intricate pictorial pieces of extraordinary dimension and shading, a feat virtually impossible to accomplish with other mediums. Due to the increasing scarcity of these beads, which have not been produced since the 1920's, each of these woven pieces is a collectors item. Inspired by her earlier work in textiles design, in which subtle colors and textures were key to her creations, Julia employs unique and innovative use of traditional stitches to achieve the desired complexity for her original, custom beadwork designs.
