We are back with another Handmade Artists' Forum blog ring post. This week's featured artisan is kitzbitz, who just happens to be a glass artisan. Now to me, as a jewellery maker, there is not many other things that make one salivate in such a way as Artisan Lampwork beads do. Just a quick look in Kitzbitz's Etsy was enough to make me need to wipe my keyboard. She has some of the loveliest purple lampwork beads I have seen in a long time. It seems to be a difficult colour to get or work with in glass. She also has a website where there is even more to drool over.
Not only does she make and sell lampwork beads, but she also makes jewellery items that include her lampwork beads and she sells frits, murrinis, twists and shards to other glass Artisans. I love the idea of her 'Mojo Boxes', lots of different bits and pieces set to a theme to help spark creativity. If I ever dive into the world of lampwork or glass fusing I know one of the places I will be shopping!
So if you are glass artisan, or a jewellery maker, or just someone who loves looking at beautiful things, drop by the Kitzbiz Art Glass Website, visit Kitzbitz on Etsy or take a look at her blog.. it will be well worth your while.
