Bringing some exposure to wonderful artisans whose shops have gone unnoticed.

I discovered the most beautiful glass perfume bottles that remind me of cocoons at BeadworxAZ on etsy. Jodi is a full-time artist who very efficiently turns her talents toward lampwork. She has an outstanding array of dainty vessels in a rainbow of colors made from Italian glass. She also creates eye-catching focal beads and jewelry. She christens each of her beloved works of art with a name. I adore the Tidal Moon pendant in fantastic blues, and the lively Fire Dance in red, orange, and yellow.
Her creative talents don't stop at lampwork as Jodi crochets, works with polymer clay, leather, and wood burning. Hanging one of her sun catcher wind chimes will certainly attract the magpie looking for nest adornments. Be sure to see her embellished driftwood faery wands, and one-of-a-kind bejeweled knitting needles.
Facebook. If you are in the Gilbert area, ask about her teaching schedule. She enjoys custom orders and is trade friendly with other etsy shops. If you are ready to indulge a love of the sparkly, spend a few minutes strolling through her fanciful shop.
