|Beads by Lampwork Artist Leese|
I am going to introduce you to one of my beautiful daughters. Yup, I'm actually putting a photo of one of my kids on my blog. Don't stalk her. I will hunt you down.
She is someone who I refer to as artistic.
But don't let that sweet face fool you, she's the same young woman who rolls her eyes at me if I ask for computer help, and she seldom reads my blog. But she likes to bake.

A few years ago, Beth being a starving college girl, had to come up with a way to put gas in her car and gifts under the tree.
So she made this glass beaded beauty.......
It's a jeweled cake tester, you know... something you poke into cakes instead of tooth picks to see if a cake is done. But these aren't tacky little trinkets, they are true works of art made with top quality goods - Czech glass beads, Tibetan silver spacers and you can't buy the stainless steel at the craft store. One of a kind gifts.

There is a real art to it - just like glass blowing - and each bead is unique and original.
The artists name is Leese and her beads are stunning.......
Beth takes whatever beads suit her mood and turns them into her own works of art as a functional one of a kind kitchen gadget. I keep mine in the knife block where it's handy. She used it on those cupcakes today to make sure they were done.

And the lemon cupcakes? Lemon poppyseed, with lemon curd filling and lemon cream cheese frosting...... one of them is calling my name.
