Lauren is yet another tireless cheerleader for the Divas, always encouraging and positive and she brings a big smile to our forums!
Lauren's lampworking studio is located in Buffalo Grove, IL. Lauren was born little bit further south in the big windy city.
Lauren started lampworking about two years ago and describes her style as "quirky and cartoonish", with 99% of them being critters. According to Lauren, turtles, dogs, penguins, owls, aliens, cats, googly eyes all rule!
Her absolute favorite is the turtle bead. She begins by getting her round bead "fix" by making really pretty and decorative beads. But she doesn't stop there. Next, Lauren adds feet, face and a tail... and check out the TOES!
Check in next Monday for part two where we will discuss all things glass! In the meantime, here's links to all things Lauren:
