Featured Artists Brooklyn Bead Goddess

Good Morning,

Today I am pleased to present fellow Forum member and handmadeartists.com shop owner April, the Brooklyn Bead Goddess.






April has always been intrigued with glass, and remembers watching the Glass Artists along the boardwalk of Cony Island, captivated by the sparkling and delicate sculptures they made.  As an adult April has taken that childhood fascination and turned it into a business.  She is also  a registered SRA member G-122, and SRAJD # 2147 member.

Created by lampworking or flameworking, April takes glass rods turns them into beautiful glass beads, which she then incorporates into her own lovely jewelry designs.  She over sees all aspects of the process including kiln annealing and final cleaning with a special bit for her dremel tool.

Recently  she has started to make large hole beads that are so popular right now, like the Pandora bracelets.  I like hers better, though.

All lampwork glass beads are made by myself in a torch flame. They are digitally kiln annealed for added strength and durability. I clean the bead holes myself using a special dremel diamond drill bit. They are closely inspected before using in my designs. I take pride in my work and you will too when you wear a piece of Wearable Art.
