ROSEMARIE DAMMANN -Handcrafted Lampe Jewelry
Making handcrafted lampwork beads has become a passion for Rosemarie. She loves making each bead, choosing color combinations and designs, then turning it into jewelry, picking just the right accent beads so that each piece is unique. Her jewelry is fashioned with beads made in her studio and annealed in a kiln for strength and durability. The glass comes from Murano, Italy. She uses sterling or Thai silver accent beads, a patented ball and socket closure and glass accent beads. This year she has begun working with felted wool and has designed some delightful needled-pointed pincushions.
