Another friend I look forward to meeting up with is Madeline Bunyan… I would like one of each of Madeline’s beads please, everything she makes is just perfect. I already own one of these little birds in pink, and they’re the nicest shaped glass bird I’ve seen.
Becky Haywood from ChameleonDesigns is another amazing maker. I love the surface effects she uses. I’m in love with these lustre painted hearts. They look so juicy!

While looking around for other UK lamp workers, I came across MasqueBeads. I love the finish to this bead. It’s sandblasted and accented with 24 carat gold. The different treatments give it a beautiful depth and each of the different effects work perfectly together as a finished piece.
Sarah from The Tartan Trout also uses sandblasting but with a much deeper cut. I love how single colour beads can have so much going on. The delicate designs are beautiful, you just want to stroke them!

Now I need to get back in the studio so I have something of my own to show for my next post!
