Featured Artist - Cats Paw Artifacts
The owner of this delightful store is Judy Richards. Judy resides in Portland, Oregon and is a member of the Portland Bead Society, the ORBS (Oregon Regional Beadmakers Society) and the ISGB (International Society of Glass Beadmakers).
Inspired by nature Judy loves to make lampwork beads and designs jewelry - unique and hopefully artful jewelry. She is always striving for new ideas, new shapes in glass.
She loves abstract lampwork most of all with layers of glass and complexity. 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.
Having a great sense of humor and Judy is careful not to take herself too seriously - she is the owner of 2 cats, hence the cat beads.
So why not pop into Judys etsy store or take a look at her blog
