Esmarts Team: Wilma’s Blueberry Swirl Bracelet and Earrings by MyGemStoneBox by Diane

by dianegeisel on December 14, 2008

Just listed today in my Esty Store are these wire wrapped pieces I’ve taken these lovely lampwork glass beads created by Wilma Whimsey’s , fellow eSMArts team member and mix them with AB Swarovski crystals and silver. I finished off the clasp with a tear drop lavendar faceted chalcedony and 2 amethysts, both teardrop and faceted as well.

Let me tell you a little bit about the artist that created these lovely beads. Wilma Travis of “Wilma Whimsey’s” is a single mom of three wonderful children and 2 delightful grandchildren. Her oldest son is engaged to be married and will do so in May of 2009. She has a handicapped young adult (27), her youngest son who still lives with her. She was originally from New York, born and raised there. I moved to MN in 1994 and I love she loves it there.

Wilma has been working with glass for several years. She began her journey with stained glass until begining Lampwork in June of 2005.
Here is how you can see more of her lovely work:
