My name is Rosemarie Hanus and in my home studio I produce handmade artisan glass lampwork beads. I do this by melting colorful rods of glass over a flaming torch and winding the glass onto metal rods. I like fire! I also spend a lot of time hiking in local parks here in Northeast Ohio (USA) with my family and two dogs and love to share my adventures. I satisfy my music muse by playing French Horn in a local brass choir.
I am participating in the fifth and final blog hop known as One World One Heart; this is a gigantic open house which allows bloggers from all over the world to mingle, meet, and make new connections. The blog hop is hosted by Lisa at A Whimsical Bohemian and the rules are here. This it the first time that I am participating – better late than never? I’m really looking forward to getting to know more bloggers.
Someone visiting here will receive this gorgeous pendant made with one of my glass lampwork beads. This pendant is ready to be placed on a chain or ribbon for your wearing pleasure. (Lol at “wearing pleasure”). The chain in the photo is just for pretty – I’m keeping that.
The winner has been announced here.
What do you have to do? Simply leave a comment on this post and please, please make sure that you leave an email address or some other way that is obvious to me on how to contact you. A link to your blog would be cool, but is not required. The winner will be announced Feb. 17th; I will email the winner as well as post it. Note! The spam detector on the blog is starting to mark the comments as spam – I am fixing them as I notice. Sorry about that…
Handmade Glass Lampwork Pendant from Spawn of Flame - Rosemarie Hanus
A quick tour of my blog
I like to talk about my finished beads, beadmaking and my bead business (tips for others). I also love to share a little bit about my little part of the world – Northeast Ohio, USA.
I try to share with the lampworking community; my most popular series of posts explain how to make a certain element (called Silvered Ivory Stringer) that is used to embellish lampworked glass. A couple of these posts even show FIRE! As I mentioned – I am definitely Pro Fire.
I Play with FIRE!
My family and I hike frequently and many of my musings are about what we see. We frequent a local park called Hinckley Reservation. WARNING – there are pictures of wildlife, including spiders and snakes; if you don’t have a problem with that, take a look at some of these posts (there are several pages!).
