I don’t do this very often, but am very excited to show my new range of fine silver knots, exclusive to somethingxtraspecial. At the moment they are only available on Etsy (haven’t got round to uploading to my website). One sold the day it went up.
I make them in many sizes and different finishes, satin, highly polished, and textured. I am also introducing them on leather thongs as an alternative to silver chains, I love silver and black leather, but not sure whether this will prove to be a popular choice, but we’ll see. If any one has any comments I’d love to hear them.
On Saturday back to features spot. Off to make a page here to show off some of the other fine silver items that I am inclusing in my shop.
“I’ve also been the crafty one on my family. I inherited my fine art abilities from my maternal grandmother, and my “vision” of developing ideas from my father. Together, they (sometimes a dangerous combination!) cause me to stretch beyond my ‘craft comfort zone.’
I graduated from college with a BA in interior design and jumped feet first into my new career as a commercial interior architect. With great devotion and a gene of perfectionism, I worked long hours leaving no time for my own art. Since then, the economy tanked out …….. I am able to give myself an escape into my own little world of art! Every ink line, stroke of paint, and shutter of the camera relays a pART of me, to which I would only entrust the best.”
I asked her to say a few words about herself:
from doodling around with different mediums.
Later on I attended art classes in college to realize the
use of paints better.
I continued to make stuff for friends and family.
Music is a big part of my creative process, jazz being my main inspiration.
Now I’ve created a website to share what I’ve accomplished. “
Lea Avroch from New York is a proud member of SRA (Self Representing Artists).” I attest to the fact that each and every one of my lampwork beads is handmade by me, Lea Avroch, in my New York studio. They are each immediately annealed in a digitally controlled kiln to ensure strength and longevity.”
Click on the title link and do go have a look at her ‘gallery’ there are some beautiful things there – different from the norm!
Deronda designs has some beautiful beads, they are mostly in sets, very affordable and there are also some lovely etched metal discs.
I love glass, I really do love glass. I spend hours and hours out in my studio playing with glass and fire, although I am also working on some fusing as well as venturing into the world of metal.
