Handmade Artists Forum Blog Ring - Featured Artist

The HAF Team featured artist for this week is Jolene of Kitzbitz Art Glass, a glass artist I've featured on my blog before.

From kitzbitz's Bio:

"I am am facinated by the flow and movement of glass in the flame and am a UK based lampwork beadmaker, glass artist and jewelry designer. I am also proud to be a member of the Frit Happens Forum Etsy Street Team and the Handmade Artists Forum Etsy Street Team."

These beads are absolutely stunning. I'm so fascinated  by the patterns and colours in lampwork beads. How do they make them look like so amazing? I wouldn't want to make anything out of them I'd just want to stare at them. Click on the picture to spend some time staring at more of Jolene's work.

LOL @ your comment about just staring at them!!!
It would definitly be a challenge to create something with them that would accentuate their beauty with out distracting from it!
Still, I'm up for a good challenge!
