Pretty, Pretty Beads!!!

I just love beads! All shapes and sizes and colours! I especially love handmade lampwork beads and have been lucky enough to purchase some beads from some very talented artisans!
So today, I want to share with you some of my favourite bead makers!!

First up is the lovely Claire Morris, also know as Rowanberry. http://rowanberrydesigns.co.uk/wp/
Her beads sell out faster than hot cakes so you have to be pretty quick to catch them! Aswell as selling the beads, she also turns some of them into stunning items of jewellery and she's also a wonderful artist!! Her tree beads are to die for!

Next, is Vickie at http://beads4breakfast.co.uk/ She's only been lampworking for a couple of years but she produces some lovely colourful beads in her kitchen workshop!!

Next up is http://www.folksy.com/shops/dragonglass I bought a huge bag of her orphan beads last year!!! There were some stunning beads in there!!!

Over on Etsy is where you will find the lovely beads made by Jane http://www.etsy.com/shop/janehamill

I adore the cute little viking beads made by http://www.etsy.com/shop/MadCatGlass

Here a few beads from my ever growing collection - if you like them as much as I do then check out some of the above stores!

Until next time!
