Handmade Artist: Brooklyn Bead Goddess

Brooklyn Bead Goddess makes beautiful lampwork beads and then makes jewelry from her beads.  I love lampwork beads and they force me to touch every single one of them inspecting their beauty when I see them.  I did not know much about how they are made until I visited Brooklyn Bead Goddess's website. I learned so much and she has photos of her making a bead.  Such a craft to work with hot flames and glass.  I have even more admiration for the art now.  It's more than a craft, it's art.

Bead Goddess was raised in Brooklyn and believes living in the NYC area gives her an edge separating her from other lampwork artisans.  I think she may be right.  A fashion mecca, she gets to see fashion before all of us do and her beads are designed to make a statement.

So all you jewelry makers out there who haven't worked with lampwork beads should consider looking at Brooklyn Bead Goddess's collection and to purchase some lampwork beads to make your own wearable art for yourself or to share.

You can find Brooklyn Bead Goddess all over the Internet.


  1. Excellent post. Her items are so creative.

  2. Great work shown in a great post.

  3. I checked out her site. The youtube video is so interesting to watch. I think that there is a special breed of people who can work with fire -- a breed I am definitely not in. But the Brooklyn Bead Goddess is certainly adept, a true professional. Thanks for bringing her site and jewelry to my attention! Cheers, Marian

    1. Thanks Marian. I'm so glad you enjoyed her creations. I'm in the same boat as you. I can hardly handle a hot glue gun!
