Caroline Rhodes' Profile

About

Hi, my name is Caroline and I live in Hampshire, United Kingdom. My background is nursing and midwifery and I currently work part time as a nurse. The rest of my time is spent playing with glass. I try to spend time making lampwork beads as I am very addicted to glass and all the bits that go with it. When I make my beads, I try to be as original as possible and love to mix colours and add silver, copper, enamel and anything that I can use with glass. I love abstract art, and my beads are often abstract and freeflow in design. Many of my beads have a layer of silver and I have noticed that nearly all of my beads contain some type of glass frit. I think I am a bit of a frit addict. I buy so much frit and thought that it would be a good idea to open and Etsy shop so that I could share some of the frit and my frit blends with others.

If you would like to purchase items from more than one of my shops, please contact me and I will deduct the postage and packing accordingly, as I would not want anyone to pay over the odds for their postage and packing.
