Foxaz -- Featured ArtFire Artisan

I'm pretty much addicted to jewellery, I admit it. It's why I started making it, of course, but I still buy a lot of lovely pieces from other makers. Earrings are my favourite little indulgences, and these two pairs from Arizona artisan Foxaz are just my type. The pair above are ocean blue faceted glass beads with copper findings, and I love the combination of colours.

Foxaz says of the studio:

I'm a retired postmaster with time on my hands. Always been crafty, artistic, now I have the time to enjoy myself. My husband and I work together on the shop- he does all the turquoise and antler pieces. We enjoy making beautiful things for others to enjoy.

I love glass flower beads, and the deep red colour of these clusters combined with the warmth of the copper findings are very appealing to me.

Do check out foxaz's shops at ArtFire and Etsy for more delicious pieces!
