Gardanne Beads

Have you checked out Anne's beads yet? She's a lampworker who creates little bits of magic using glass.
This Kandinsky bead was given to me several months ago when Anne stopped in and went to lunch with me. I hoarded it for a while, and then finally settled on this bracelet design.
I love Anne's glass techniques. She has a wonderful sense of color and always creates something interesting and unique.

If you have a minute this chilly Saturday morning, and you want to peruse Anne's shop- click here to go to her Etsy store Gardanne Beads.

  1. That bead is so perfectly Kandinsky!
    I love it! She does make the best beads. I won some from her awhile ago...glad to know I am not the only hoarder in the bunch! *wink*
    Just finished my second pass through Stringing and I've got to say that Springtime Collaboration is one of my favorites! Well done, my friend! Enjoy this frosty day with someone you love. Erin

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
