The pieces in this Gallery have all been designed and created by artist Dani Rapinett at The Whimsical Bead studio located in Healesville, Victoria (Australia).
Dani's medium of choice is polymer clay whilst metal is a close second. Most of Dani's inspiration comes from the world around her and combine her love of colour, texture and the ancient Japanese art of mokume gane.
Dani says, "I live to create. I love the fact that each of my pieces represents a little part of my life and in turn my passion. I love that in a world where so often we are on a fast-paced mission to get things done as quickly as possible, I can leave that world behind and unhurriedly create something that can be valued in what I believe is becoming a 'mass-produced', 'throw-away' society.
I love to share my art with the world and hope they enjoy my pieces as much as I have enjoyed the journey of their creation".
