Add a unique splash of color to your spring wardrobe with hand-stitched Penguina Designs jewelry.

West Seattle artist Johanna Lindsay creates each elegant, one-of-a-kind piece using traditional bead-weaving stitches. An array of beads, glass, crystals and pearls are layered to create three-dimensional structures without using a torch.

Try on the Morocco Pendant Necklace of yellow and sea-foam glass and pearls, or a pair of Baja swing earrings (shown), which suspend red and green glass beads from sterling hooks.
