GUEST ARTIST - ROSE MARIE DAMMANN
Making handcrafted lampwork beads has become a passion for Rose Marie. 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. Rose Marie uses sterling or Thai silver accent beads, a patented ball and socket closure and glass accent beads. Rose Marie has incorporated felting into her jewelry designs and also makes
charming felted one-of-a-kind pincushions.
