Featured Studio: LaJewelryDesigns

This weeks Ajdjss featured studio is "LaJewelryDesigns" aka Lea.

LaJewelryDesigns is a studio that is filled with a variety of lovely lampwork beads in different shapes, sizes, and colors.

What is really fabulous is that Lea makes each and every bead by herself. She does this in her own studio in NY.

Lea takes great pride in the quality of her beads. To ensure the strength and longevity of each of her beads she immediately has them annealed in a digitally controlled kiln in her studio. Annealing is quite an important procedure when making lampwork beads because it ensures that the beads will not shatter.

Here is are some of the wonderful lampwork beads found in "LaJewelryDesigns":

Lea is a proud member of the organzation "Self Representing Artists" (SRA) and she has the distinction of having her beads showcased in various publications:
June 2007 "Bead and Button"

September/October 2007 "Belle Armoire"

November/December 2007 "Bead Trends" and

March/April 2008 "Bead Trends"

Wow, Lea you are to be commended for your talent and skill. "Hooray for Lea"!!!
Btw, my dear guild members "LaJewelryDesigns" is now offering "FREE SHIPPING" to guild member studios--WooHoo!!!
You are invited to visit "LaJewelryDesigns" to feast your eyes on some really fabulous beads to create with.

Your beads are beautiful! There were quite a few that really caught my eye. Funny enough I already had you bookmarked even before this feature so you caught it more than once.

Keep up the great work!
