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 I try to spend 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. 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 love abstract art, and my beads are often abstract and freeflow in design.

If you would like to see some of my finished jewelry made with my own beads you can find these in my other Etsy shop 'piggiesfly'. If you would like to see some of my glass frit and hand blended frit blends you can find these in my other Etsy…

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.

I am a mum of three and at the moment I have two in university - oh the expense!!!!! The other one is in full time employment and is fending for himself. I adore animals and we have had all sorts of pets over the years, and I am often visited in my beads studio by Snoopy (the dog), Yogi or Peanut (the cats). We had chickens up until last year and it was not unknown for a chicken or two to join me in the bead studio - sounds like the good life!!!!
