Etsy Artis of the Week

This week's Etsy Artist is Dorset Hill Beads. Just look at the beautiful lavender color of these beads. And she made them herself! I'm impressed.

A note from the artist:

Chunkies are my most favorite shape to make right now...I love how these came out...I used light rose as the base and layered silvered ivory shards for the marble effect.

Hi! My name is Eileen, I live in a suburb of Maryland with my wonderful husband, 2 sons and our bulldog. I love creating one-of-kind lampwork beads and being able to share them with people like you. I have found my artistic passion.

I am mostly self taught but have been fortunate enough to have taken a few classes from artists that I consider to be highly regarded in the lampwork world. My beads are made with soft glass such as Morette/Effetre, ASK, Lauscha and others. After each bead is created I tuck them into my kiln for a good night sleep so they will wake up sturdy and strong to last a lifetime...
