Studio News: A Preview of Upcoming Posts

I needed to take a break this week, but I wanted to at least give you a preview of a series I'm working on. This will eventually be compiled into a single free tutorial for your use in marketing jewelry containing artisan glass beads.

Lampwork for the Jewelry Designer - Identify the characteristics of quality lamwpork beads and the multi-step process of how beads are made. The objective of this tutorial is to educate the jewelry designer on what to look for (and what to avoid) in glass beads. Understanding the time and investment the artist puts into the beads will help you, as the jewelry designer, market your jewelry containing artisan glass beads.

If you are a lampworker: what is your two-minute "elevator speech" you give to someone who knows nothing about glass beads?

If you are a jewelry designer: what is your two-minute "elevator speech" you give when explaining the value of the glass art beads in your designs?

Thanks, and have a great week!


  1. Two minutes? Wow ... everywhere I go it has to be either one minute or 30 seconds!

    BTW --- if you're in town on the 24th, come to the Spaghetti Warehouse on Central Expressway at 6:00 pm for a network meeting. I know you're off the the far side of the world, but I'd love to hear your elevator speech before you fly away!!

    I'll be following this series! Looking forward to it.

  2. Okay - I probably need to pare it down to the 30-second elevator speech...but just in case! You'll have both!

    I leave the 24th, so I'll miss that, but did you have something going on next weekend?
