This bracelet features artisan made polymer clay beads. These are the focal floral bead and the scultpted roses; representing three different artists. There are about 50 charms dangling and clustered throughout this bracelet giving it great movement and continuous change.

Serendipity Artisan Bracelet
"Serendipty" Artisan Lampwork Bracelet

This bracelet is the result of wonderful things coming together at the same time. The artisan crafted lampwork glass beads are from at least 5 different artsists. Even the silver is handmade by skilled artisans, from Thailand and Bali. I love the colors and playfulness of the shapes.

Violet - beaded spider pendant
"Violet" Beaded Spider Pendant

After having made a few beaded spiders, it was suggested that I make them wearable. After coming up with a way, I made about a dozen. This is one of the last ones. The body is artisan made lampwork glass. The legs are glass bugle beads and Swarovski crystals. In her front legs she has her dinner - a crystal butterfly. Dangling from her body and back legs is her "silk" attached to another Swarovski crystal.

Floral Artisan Lampwork Earrings
"Gentle Breeze" Artisan Lampwork Bead Earrings

This pair of earrings features wonderful floral beads expertly crafted by Heather Davis of Blissful Garden Beads. She has honed and perfected her craft over many years. I've been fan for about as long as I've been making jewelry with lampwork glass beads. They are so beautiful, I don't want to do much else with them but I feel that I need to.

Second Spring Bead Necklace
"Second Spring" Artisan Lampwork Bead Necklace

"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower." - Albert Camus

I love working with colors and progression. This necklace starts with the lampwork artistry of Sarah Friskey. From there I've transitioned from the green to yellow, orange and red. All of the beads are softly etched for a matte appearance and velvety feel.

Flamekeeper Beads Bracelet
"Amy" Artisan Lampwork Bead Bracelet

Another one of my favorite bead artist is Amy from Flamekeeper Glass. She was offereing up these beads as orphans; not part of a set. When I got them, I didn't want to use them individually. I loved them together. They were made by the same hand the feel like it. I had to keep this bracelet for myself. I wear it more often than any other piece in my collection.
