Welcome to my Dzign by Jamie Blog. My name is Jamie, of course. And my handmade experience started out with soap. My sister and I were raising money for a humane society where she worked by attending craft sales and selling donated items. After few years we decided to earn a little cash while we helped the humane society, and that's when I started making soap. Well, not long after that I ventured into lampwork bead creating and was totally addicted. I've been making artisan beads for about 6 years now. I came upon hand stamped jewelry because I have a need to create. Unfortunately, living in Wisconsin makes it hard to torch lampwork beads when it's super cold in the winter, especially when my studio is in an old drafty garage. And I love doing both lampwork and metal stamping. So, to accommodate all that I love I decided to create one brand and merge my Glasstastic Treasures Lampwork with my Metal Amore hand Stamped Jewelry into one great shopping experience! I hope you enjoy Dzign by Jamie, which will be found in under my Glasstastic Treasures link, but branded with my new name.
