You will find truly unique lampwork beads and pieces in the etsy shop of Catldy99. Read Judy Richards bio below:

" B.A. University of Minnesota Magna Cum Laude in Technical Theatre Coursework in Graphic Design at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco, CA Coursework in lamp working - Portland, OR Member of the International Society of Glass Beadmakersseller on ebay for 5 years - over 500-100% positive feedback Judy Richards resides in Portland, Oregon where it rains this time of year. A well kept secret is that it doesn't rain all year around.Judy is a member of the Portland Bead Society, the ORBS (Oregon Regional Beadmakers Society) and the ISGB (International Society of Glass Beadmakers).Judy makes lampwork beads and designs jewelry - unique and hopefully artful jewelry. She is always striving for new ideas, new shapes in glass. Judy is inspired by nature (flowers, birds) depicted in glass. She loves abstract lampwork most of all with layers of glass and complexity. She is always striving to that goal.She has done the work of reasonably exact glass beads - but yearns to break out of that toward something more complex and deep in an artistic sense. She also has a sense of humor and doesn't take herself too seriously - she is the owner of 2 cats, hence the cat beads. Judy likes to laugh and make others smile with her work.Judy's dream buyer is the Sundance catalog.Probably the best things she has made are jewelry with her own lampwork beads and semi precious stones that have sold. They are really pushing the envelope of what we think of as jewelry and adornment."
