Happy 5 Years Anniversary!

Today is the actual date of my 5 year anniversary. Hooray! *throws confetti*

The Open Studio weekend went very well. A big THANK YOU! to all of the visitors who were trickling in and out the whole time. I am so happy I got to show the wonderful craft of lampwork to all of you.

Thank you to old friends and new friends for stopping by, and thank you to all 'strangers' who came to see what it was all about. Thank you for the fun challenges you gave me.

And finally a big thank you to my dear family (mother, father, sister and my husband) who helped with lots of things, before and during the weekend, to get everything ready.

More pictures from the weekend can be seen here, and here is the photo countdown from earlier.

Happy Birthday, Little Mermaid :)

Everybody celebrates the 100'th year, so here's to the Little Mermaid - 101 years! Woot!

Today is the 101'st birthday of the little Mermaid.
Not the fairytale by H.C. Andersen, which is much older, but the statue in the Copenhagen harbour.
There she sits, the lovely little thing, gazing across the water ...

To celebrate this day I decided to see how many mermaid lampwork beads I could find, because I definately knew they were out there. And I were not dissapointed. These are just a fraction of what can be found. Enjoy!

Rachelle Goldreich is the maker of this sparkly wet mermaid.

This beauty was made by Marlene McDonald of Marlene McDonald Glass, maker of sea treasures.

Ulrike Dietrich made this sweet and colorful focal.

This cute number is by Diana Rast of DizzyBead. She has several mermaids and many other little pendant friends in her shop.

This stunning focal is by Melissa Johanneson Rice of Flame Touched Glass. Melissa has many owls and colourful mushrooms in her shop. (the mermaids tail is on the back of the bead).

This sleek form is by Sally Sutherland of Soul Silver. Clean beadlines and sweet silver pieces are in her shop.

This playful Mermaid was made by Rebecca Jurgens of LandsArts.

Three Mermaids in a row, by Summer Cambell of Summer Glass Designs. Click the picture for a better view.

This necklace is by Simin Koernig of Simins Creations.

And finally, a sparkly Mermaids tail from Ginger and Jerry at BeadTrap.

Thank you so much to all the artists, for use of your pictures, and for making the beads in the first place. What a bounty of beautiful flowing shapes and colours :)

I also wanted to make my own mermaid, and if you come visiting my 'Open Studio' today or tomorrow (at 10am - 5 pm) you will get at chance to see and perhaps bring home one of the very first of my brand new Mermaid Pins! Tiny and shiny :)

Have a great weekend!

Profusion Art Glass celebrates 5 years anniversary!

Five years ago this month, I finally worked up my courage and registered my lampwork hobby as a proper business. And now as time has passed, it is time to celebrate!

Fireworks! Pew pew ...

So on saturday 23'rd and sunday 24'th
I open the doors to my lampwork studio,
and you are invited.

I will show you how glass beads are made; goddess beads, other shapes, dotted beads, pins too (nipsenåle) ...

I will serve you a light snack and give you 20% off all beads and jewelry ...

I will even take the challenge of making your dream bead right then and there. You know, the one you have not been able to find anywhere ...

Sounds good?
Then drop by on aug. 23-24 from 10-17 and lets talk.

Until then you can find the info and the address on my facebook event, join/like my facebook page and follow my 10 day photo countdown as it unfolds.
