Glass artist: Kerri Fuhr

    Kerri Fuhr Kerri Fuhr   My name is Kerri Fuhr and I am a full time lampwork glass bead artist living in British Columbia, Canada. Using a tabletop torch, rods of glass and a few hand tools, I sculpt detailed focal beads and ornate bead sets for jewelry designers and collectors world wide. I am inspired by nature and many lively creatures are depicted on my beads!      Dragonflies, honey bees, ravens and herons are among my favorite subjects and with each bead I create I strive to capture their character and spirit. Rich colors and delicate tapestry - inspired scrollwork also decorate many of my beads - the more detail and color the better! New designs are featured often so be sure to check out my blog for daily updates and fun new beads!     Technorati Tags: handmade beaded jewelry , wearable art , beads , jewelry , necklace , mixed media , beading

My jewelry designs are usually petite and practical. I like to make jewelry that I find comfortable to wear, and I’m too klutzy to wear anything overly large. While I don’t totally “diss,” trends, I lean more towards classic looks with a little added zing. I like to use all kinds of materials, but very often you’ll find beads mixed in some how, even if the piece is primarily made of metal.

Hadar Jacobson’s book on BronzClay is available

I believe that Hadar has self-published this book, and you can buy it directly from her at this time. Her work with metal clays of all types is amazing, so I believe that she is a great person to learn from if you’d like to take up this medium. Information and ordering links are available on Hadar’s website . Technorati Tags: handmade beaded jewelry , wearable art , beads , jewelry , necklace , mixed media , beading
