Artist Spotlight: Part Four

I've got a problem.  My problem is that I honestly can't decide which photos to post in this Artist Spotlight because everything just blows me away.  I'm not exaggerating - Every.  Single.  Thing.  So this is going to be a picture-heavy post.



So, who's blowing me away so thoroughly?  Jolene Wolfe of Kitzbitz Art Glass in Middlesex, England.



Jolene makes and sells lampwork beads, including custom ones!



She also sells beadmaking sets and teaches classes in beadmaking.



Plus, she makes jewelry and sells that too!



As she puts  it, she melted her first glass rod in June 2007, set off the fire alarm and was evicted to the garden shed!  She's been smitten with bead making ever since.  She has been teaching bead making for about a year now and recently completed the renovation of her garden studio in Middlesex.  Since the birth of her beautiful baby girl she's now ready to give up the rat-race and make her passion for glass her full time job.  Her studio officially opened in February of 2009.



For those who don't have their own workspace, she even rents out her own studio.



To see her galleries, purchase bead making sets, get bead making information, contact Jolene, and see about taking classes or renting her studio, visit her website.



To purchase her beautiful jewelry, bead sets, and more bead making sets, or to order custom made beads for your own projects, visit her etsy store.



To see even more of her work, see bead making tutorials including photos, and learn more about Jolene and what she does, you want to visit her blog.
