Featured Artist Tuscan Road Designs

Holly, creator of Tuscan Road Designs went to Italy and learned how to make lampwork beads!  I'm jealous!!!!
I'm just kidding -
but, she did go to Italy, and she did learn how to make lampwork beads, but she didn't learn how to do them in Italy!  She just got hooked on them in Italy!  I guess there are worse things she could have gotten hooked on!!!
Holly's aim is not to follow the trends but to create her own unique eclectic and assymetrical pieces.   Besides making her own lampwork beads, Holly also loves Swarovski Crystals,  semi-precious gem stones, and works with sterling silver, Bali silver, African silver, copper and brass.   Enjoy some of Tuscan Roads jewelry!
This lovely Spring Bracelet is made with lampwork beads along with Swarovski crystals, and Pinapple quartz - love those lampwork beads.















Besides blue, I admit it, I'm a sucker for just about anything garnet - such as this awesome Pearl Necklace with Garnet Locket











so, go ahead, I know you want to, go take a peek at Tuscan Road Designs on Etsy, and/or visit Tuscan Road's blog! and have a great day!

Well, I was ready to go to Italy to learn how to make beads! Not really, but it sounded convincing. Great post about a very talented artist!

I love her work and agree that there are many worse things she could have developed and obsession for! Great picks.
