I'm trying to save up to make some major purchases of artisan lampwork beads. As a result, I have been adding TONS of bead artists to my Etsy favorites. Over the next few weeks, I plan to showcase several of those artists.
Some artists' work is so unique that I am able to identify the artist before I even click on that little thumbnail. This week's featured artist, Avenue Beads, happens to be one of those artists. I think its a combination of the vibrant colors used in his beads and his photography style, but I always know an Avenue Bead when I see it pass by on the recently listed items.
I am particularly fascinated by his use of vibrant blues. Here are some of my personal favorites from Avenue Beads.
