The Handmade Tweet

Today's Handmade Tweet comes from fellow Trading Post member and fellow Canadian Gillian Beads on ArtFire.

From Gillian Beads Bio:

"Welcome to my Artfire shop!!

***************************************************

A dentist by day...a lampwork and jewelry artist by night, and evenings, and weekends, and well yes, very early in the mornings too! I love glass!

I just love working with glass and am primarily inspired by the natural world around me. All my lampwork beads are lovingly handmade by me, Gillian Soskin, in my home studio in London, Ontario, Canada.

I design my own jewelry using my lampwork beads and commercial beads such as Swarovski crystals and semi-precious stones."




I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love lampwork beads. It's great to find such a talented artist so close to me. I live not far from London, Ontario. Plus she's a member of the Trading Post. Hoping maybe she'll want to trade with me sometime. But even it she doesn't I still want to show off her beautiful creations. These are so gorgeous.
