Jewelry Spotlight - Bastille Bleu Lampwork

Spring Reeds Handmade Lampwork Glass Beads BASTILLE BLEU Green Striped Rounds

This week's jewelry spotlight is on Kimberly Nicole Rogalski from Bastille Bleu Lampwork.  Kimberly specializes in making her own absolutely gorgeous lampwork beads!!  Kimberly is a self-taught glass artist.  She creates bead art that is versatile, eclectic, colorful, and whimsical.  She has also begun branching out into jewelry design, stamped metal, and wirework. I just love her use of color and the depth to which she makes her beads.  The detail work on some of these beads is also truly magnificent!!

Her work is phenomenal and has been featured in "An Introduction to Working with Art Glass Beads:  The Beader's Handbook on Lampwork" by Debby Gwaltney.

You can find Kimberly's work on her website Bastille Bleu or check her out on Etsy or ArtFire.
