Featured Designer: Lampwork by Lydia Muell

Happy weekend everyone!! :)

I get so excited each week to share wonderful designers that I come across with all of you.
It's like unveiling a great treasure!!

When I saw these lampwork treasures by Lydia Muell, I'm sure my jaw dropped open. Even though I am not a bead designer, I could see the layers of work and thought that went in to each one.

It boggles my mind because I have never observed a lampwork artist make beads like this.
How fun it must be to create such wonderful depth. I am thinking you would have to have a mind like an architect to design layer by layer to create these fabulous effects.

Lydia has a number of lampwork tutorials available for sale on her website if you are interested in learning her techniques.

I was so glad Lydia gave me permission to share her work here tonight, I just know you will love it!!

Enjoy and have a great weekend!! :)

Fabulous beads and such detail. I don't know if you are aware but Jean Yates did a wonderful review of your book in the latest edition of Australian Beading magazine. Just thought I'd pass that on. If you'd like me to scan it and email it to you I'm more than happy. Let me know.
