Patti Cahill: Lampwork Eye Candy...

I had originally met Patti Cahill of Dyed in the Fire at a show in the Maitland Civic Center long before I was involved with the bead world.  She was set up next to my sister and my mom kept trying to get her to eat some egg rolls.  I marveled at Patti's colorful handiwork, thinking that they looked like pieces of candy.  (I'm a BIG fan of candy!)

Now, years later, after trying my own hand at lampwork and knowing several glass artisans, my appreciation for her work has grown tenfold.  Not only is she dedicated to quality and craftsmanship, but she continues to be innovative and consistent in making saccharine-sweet eye candy.  She just opened an Etsy site and now it's super easy to get ahold of one of my long-time favorite's seemingly confectionary creations.  CLICK HERE to visit her shop.

Love Patti Cahill, have an awesome ring acquired at bead and button two years ago, and a bead collection as well.

Ooh, those pillow rings she makes are simply divine. I want one (or two or three)!
