Spotlight On: Jolene of Kitzbitz Art Glass

I've known of Jolene's gorgeous glassy work for a while but have only recently discovered that she makes fabulous polymer clay beads too.  Her tattoo beads are amazingly detailed as are these beautiful rose beads.

I am in awe of anyone who can do canework like this - especially when they have small children to look after as Jolene does!  For those of us not blessed with that particular talent Jolene also sells the canes for you to use in your own work.  Look at these, aren't they beautful?

Looking back through some of Jolene's past work I found this picture of some of her fabulous lampwork beads.  Don't they just call out to you?  They certainly did to me.  The colours in them are really zingy and they look good enough to eat!

Jolene has also recently set up the Craft Pimp forum.  It is a great place to meet like-minded people across a huge range of crafts - and the eye-candy in the galleries is definitely worth a look!

If you would like to find out more about Jolene and her work why not check out her Etsy shop, Blog and FB page.  And don't forget to pop on over to the Craft Pimp forum too. :o)
