New Lampwork Bead Designs

After a little hiatus I am back with some new designs! I think most artists get a form of ‘writer’s block’ now and again, and I’m no different. Occasionally the ideas stop coming so the choice becomes whether to revisit previous designs or to just take a break and allow time for something new to take root.

For me, it was worth taking time off because a few new ideas came to mind which gives me a fresh perspective and a renewed motivation to get back to the torch.

This week’s beads include a couple of my new ideas…with more to come soon! πŸ˜€

Winter & Holiday Lampwork Beads

I am fully in holiday mode! Usually it takes a while for me to get in the spirit of the season (probably from living in SoCal where we can be in the mid-80’s in December). But this year, for some reason, I’ve really gotten into the holidays early. πŸ˜€

This week’s beads reflect that wintery and festive mood –

Stargazer Lilies & Beach Walk Beads

It has been the hottest weeks of the summer so far and therefore my time at the torch has become extremely limited. Thankfully, I was able to complete some beads before the heat wave hit! But until things cool down, I will have to commit all my new beady ideas to paper.

Until then, enjoy this week’s beads – I’ll have some new ones next week too, but after that…it’s up to ‘mother nature’.
