It's official, uBou is totally up and running now as our first 2 artists sign up. We welcome to the fold Julie Fountain of Lush Lampwork and George Harper of By George.
Both design and hand make jewellery, but in very different styles. Julie is a glass lampworker - she makes her own deliciously desirable glass beads over a lampwork flame, selling the beads for others to make into jewellery (or horde!) as well as creating her own jewellery pieces too.
George is an expert in metal maille. She creates exquisite chain maille and metal weaves to form bracelets, necklaces and rings. Her work is predominately maille (why fiddle with perfection!), but she also uses handmade lampwork glass beads and gemstones in her designs.
More uBou artists coming to this blog soon!! :)
