Lampwork Beads with Antique Scrolls

The older I get the more I appreciate and am drawn to older things. They remind me of an era gone by and seem to hold so much more value than something brand new since they are already well used.

With this new scroll design, I have tried to recreate that antique feel and old-fashioned look of yesteryear. I look forward to incorporating this pattern into many more of my beads! 🙂

Crazy For Glass Dots!

As a lampworker I have always preferred to create freeform designs with my beads, only dabbling a little bit in fine dot placement. But recently I find myself drawn to carefully applying tiny dots to my beads with as much precision as my hands will allow. I guess in some ways it’s a new challenge and a sort of discipline to attempt to do it with relative symmetry.

So lately I have been immersing myself in creating beads with lots and lots of tiny dots and have been loving every minute of it! Something I never thought I’d hear myself say! 😀

This week’s listings include all dotted bead designs in rustic, weathered colors of fumed dark ivory, butternut, dark colbalt and deep red to give these beads an Old-World look.
