Lampwork Beads and Glass Art by CW Design

A wonderful assortment of Lampwork beads

Christel Wille

I met Christel Wille a few years ago at my first Art by the Lighthouse show in Niagara-on-the-Lake.  A multi-talented Lampwork glass artist and Textiles artist - - Christel brings an interesting variety of quality goods to the show.

With a soft-spoken European accent, Christel is friendly and inviting and has a certain sense of whimsy about her.

She told me recently, at the Art in the Park show in Pelham, that she just stopped making beads completely and began making little insects and snakes and creatures. Just stopped.
It's evident that both have brought her much joy.

A young fan who already purchased a little snake, but couldn't resist coming back for another look. :)

The detail and quality in her work is honest and refreshing. I had a fun time looking over everything in her tent and finding little treasures, everywhere!

Gorgeous necklaces and bracelets. How can you choose? 

Her woven scarves are breathtaking. Her jewelry is amazing. Every piece, every glass bead made by hand!

Hand-crafted lampwork bead bracelets 

Some cute creatures

Beads galore! Make your own necklace! 

OMG! Would you look at those beads?! Wicked!

So unique and gorgeous! 

So sweet. Christel and her love, enjoying some live music at Art in the Park 2012.
