I love the bright colours of┬áMexican beadwork. I didn’t buy anything this year, though. The prices were somewhat higher and the designs were more mundane. Last year, there were a couple stunning necklaces that I photographed and then kicked myself for not buying on the spot. I bought one of the floral necklaces last year and I hang it on the wall.

Hutzot Hayotzer 2014: Eli Avisera and the Wood Craft Center

Eli Avisera was back this year, giving wood-working demonstrations. He founded the Wood Craft Center in 1988 and gives courses. One of my coworkers took a course from him and enjoyed it very much. I’m always fascinated by how he can take a block of wood and turn it into a gorgeous box within minutes. His work is magical (check out the video below).

The wood is poplar.
