Featured Artist: Studio Marcy

Meet Marcy Lamberson, a glass artist who loves making people smile through my whimsical beads and sculptures. She makes her glass beads with glass from Murano, Italy. I was in Venice a few years back and got to see some of the glass blowers in action. It is truly an amazing art. I would love to have the torch to be able to do lampwork one day like Miss Marcy!! It is truly an art.

Marcy teaches private and group lessons (too bad I'm not in the Atlanta area) and enjoys taking on custom commissions. While working out of her sunroom studio overlooking her garden and birds, squirrels, chipmunks and occasional wandering possums, she sometimes just decides to capture them into little beads! She also makes them wear clothes and jewelry when turning them into little fun glass pieces. Marcy states "There's nothing like a hippo being dressed up in a skirt, earrings and necklace or a bumblebee with a pirate patch."

You can check out Marcy's blog.

New beads are added to her shop almost daily, so stop by often.
