Featured Artist April "Brooklyn Bead Goddess"


Today I am introducing you to a beautiful, creative artist, April, brooklynbeadgoddess . Her work is exceptional. 
Not only does she create beautiful jewelry but she makes her own lampwork glass beads.
Lampwork is used to describe handcrafted glass beads that are made by melting glass rods with a torch. The word lamp was used in ancient times when the glass was melted with the flame of an oil lamp.Today the craft is called flameworking.
Here are a few of April's beautiful pieces of jewelry.

 I love this bling for your handbag. What a great addition to a handbag.

Purple is my color. Love this!

Gorgeous earrings !

A beautiful beaded necklace!

  1. lovely items. I think it's great how different bloggers will write on the same shop, but share different items. And all her items are great.

  3. I agree with above comments. Great items and yes we all do create our blogs with different items, but we also show different perspectives on the same artist I think. Also, yes short and sweet, sometimes I wish that I could do short and sweet, yeah, maybe, or maybe not. :0
