Shop of the Week: Renee Suich

Renee Suich, of, makes the most fascinating lampwork beads. Her work is so beautiful that I’m tempted to start making lampwork beads myself! It looks fun!

From Renee: “Every bead is a miniature work of art. The process from planning a design, to color combinations, to actually melting the glass, each step is enjoyable and always a new challenge. I use my beads to make and sell jewelry, key chains, and Skeleton Key Beads.

The Skeleton Key Beads are my best seller and my biggest challenge. Many of these are made and don’t get listed. Sometimes the prettiest bead gets stuck on the key shaft and won’t slide & spin. The bead is broken and I start over.

The Key Chains are made from beads that have gone a little too funky. It’s easy for me to get lost in the torch, melting glass, the bead keeps getting bigger…”

Every bead is a one-of-a-kind piece. They have been kiln annealed and properly cleaned. The construction is sturdy. The jewelry pieces are comfortable. Every order is very personal, and she usually ships within 24 hours. She will ship internationally and recently lowered her shipping cost to Canada.

Special for week of March 23 - 29, FREE SHIPPING to U.S. & Canada – Send her an Etsy conversation about your desired item, and she will delete the shipping charges prior to your purchase.

I, too, absolutely love lampwork, but I don't have the torch etc. it takes to make these amazing beads. (Plus, I'm not sure I would want to burn my house down.) I make polymer clay beads, though, and am currently exploring a process for creating faux lampwork. Time-consuming, but the results are amazing.

This designer has gorgeous work. (How'd she get the beads around those keys, or is it a permanent fixture?)

I recently came across this recognition for Renee on Twitter! I did!

I have one of her gorgeous skeleton keys dangling from my purse and I love it! I must admit I bought it as a gift, but kept it for myself.

I have other glass of hers...her shop is awesome and her prices are too low! shhhh...and get them while you can!
