I am back again with another Handmade Artists' Forum blogring featured artisan. This week the lucky one is Tuscan Road Designs aka Holly.
Holly was inspired to become a lampwork glass artisan after a trip Murano, Italy, and after learning the art of lampwork for herself through classes, she then taught her teenage son how to lampwork. Eventually she decided to incorporate those handmade beads into jewellery pieces and Tuscan Road Designs was born.
Holly favours asymmetric designs, as well as loving to use Swarovski crystals and gemstones. Her pieces are each a journey through texture and interest, topped off with a delightful use of colour.
As well as maintaining a well stocked Etsy studio, Holly also has a vibrant blog where she promotes other handmade artisans as well as giving us a little glimpse inside her world.
