About Me

Hello, Iím Laura Blanck from Openstudio.

My beads are created in the magic of fire!
Iím a poet, a dancer, a singer, an actress and a decoupage collage master. How do I make a living? Iím also a Realtor!
I love color and movement, whimsical and funky, unique and rare, stylish and exquisite, unusual, esoteric, eccentric and flamboyant art forms. I was guided under the knowledge and skills of some of the most talented teachers in all areas of performing arts and my always obsessive process of self discovery and self taught spontaneous creation. Iíve been educated in lampworking courses with incomparable instructors like Lance McRorie, Silvie Landswone, Pam Dugger, Pattie Cahill, Jennifer Geldard.
Did I study something else? Yes!, Psychology, PE teacher, among othersÖ
I have two sons who have just graduated from College (cinematography and digital media), two female cats: a black (Michi) and a calico (Luna), and a boyfriend who is a visual artist.
I like gourds, papers, yarn, photos, music CDís, movie DVDís, books, games, Theater, Pantomime, Belly Dance and all styles of Dancing, Martial Arts, Halloween stuff, talking to the Moon, Champagne, Tarot Cards, trips, chocolate, singing, writing and dancing, dancing, dancing .

MY ARTIST STATEMENT:

I was guided under the knowledge and skills of some of the most talented teachers in all areas of performing arts and my always obsessive process of self discovery and self taught spontaneous creation.

My beads are created in the magic of fire!

I make my own glass beads in my home studio.
Each individual lampwork bead is torched in fire, with Italian Moretti/Vetrofond (Murano), German Lauscha, American Bullseye and ASK Glass.
They are kiln annealed for strength and durability.
All of my jewelry pieces are one of a kind, handmade with the finest materials.
In my creations I include Fine Silver, Artisan Sterling Silver, Gold-filled Silver, Swarovski Crystals, Semi-Precious Stones, Freshwater Pearls, Shells, Beads from all over the world (mainly Czech), unique objects and rare finds, the best stringing threads.
I believe in the inherent power of magical protection that comes from adorning yourself with an authentic piece of my jewelry art.
