Lampwork Artist Designs One-of-a-Kind Pieces of Jewelry from Murano Glass

Ever since she was a little girl, Miriam has been attracted to things that sparkle – especially glass beads.  She dabbled in jewelry making as a child growing up in Germany but after being introduced to the art of glass bead making she hasn’t looked back.

She has been a lampwork artist for over eight years now creating unique pieces of art from Venetian murano glass. Soon after moving to Ottawa she joined forces with another jewelry designer, Sandra, and Azurika was born.

Azurika offers very unique handcrafted jewelry composed of handmade lampwork beads, chainmaille and gemstones. Azurika only uses hand-picked high quality materials such as murano glass, stainless steel, copper and various gemstone beads to create their one-of-a-kind jewelry designs.

Miriam used to showcase her work at the wonderful Christmas markets in Germany so we are delighted to have Azurika at our Old-Fashioned Christmas – Art & Craft Sale on December 1st.

To find out more about Azurika’s shiny things, visit their website and check them out on Facebook, Etsy & Pinterest.

Shine on!
