Sally Balfour

Sally uses flame formed birds, creatures, tiny glass beads and found objects, intricately beaded together to create magical garden necklaces and earrings.

The studio where Sally works and lives is on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, Victoria  where she draws much of her inspiration for her beautiful and collectable artworks She creates intricately beaded jewellery made from elements of her flame formed birds, animals and flowers combined with tiny glass beads and found objects. Her works take many weeks to make and are admired by collectors around the world. She has won many awards in glasswork, beading and jewellery making both in Australia and the USA and is continually taking courses and experimenting with all forms of jewellery making to extend her skills and master her art.

‘Imagination, ongoing learning and never enough tools.  Stories to be told within a love of intricate bead weaving using my own created and found materials.’
