One of the things I most admire is lampwork beads. I love watching them being made. There was a little gallery on Jay Street in Schenectady, New York that I would stop in everytime I was in the area-just to watch one of the artisans there make lampwork beads. The gallery was set up so that you could watch her thru a window-literally inches away from her work bench. Sometimes I wondered if they didn't have to clean the windows from my nose smudges after I left... I was that mesemerized.
I've got that same feeling looking at lightkeepings work... but this time I'm smudging up my computer screen!
I absolutely love the bright beads Anastasija uses in her designs. One of the hardest things for me as an artisan is to find just "exactly" the combination of colors that I want to put together. I sometimes spend hours looking thru my bead stash looking for that "perfect" combination. In the Hop on the Rainbow Bracelet take a look at the choice of colors...spot on in my view!
I also really love the combinations of turquoise in the Day on the Beach Set it's that turquoise color again-one of my favorites!
I hope you check out Lightkeepings shop, it's full of delightful finds!
You can also keep up with her here..and do me a favor let her know how you found her.
Thanks so much!
