Friday's Favourite - Jolene Wolfe of KitzBitz Art Beads.



 
Friday's Favourite is Jolene Wolfe from KitzBitz Art Beads
 
 
Today is the start of the Beadathon, a 24 hour lampwork bead making marathon to raise awareness and money for the Beads of Courage charity, supporting children and their families with serious illness such as cancer.
 
The Beadathon is the brainchild of Jolene Wolfe of KitzBitz Art Beads.  Its the second year the Beadathon has happened, last year, 2012, saw a small group of lampworkers from the Craft Pimp Forum gather at Jolene's home studio to burn the torches throughout the day and night.  We had an amazing time and raised a fair amount of money and made hundreds of beads which then went into the programme for the children.
 
Jolene makes lampwork supplies which she sells in her Etsy shop FritNChips
 

 
Jolene also makes fabulous Buzzword Beads, her unique and distinctive styled beads for bracelets
 
 
 
Pop over to Jolene's Blog to read all about the Beep Beep Robots she has been making for Beads of Courage.

While you are reading this I will be driving to Jolene's to start my shift at the torch, I just wanted to say to Jolene, on behalf of everyone involved in the Beadathon and those of us that love to hang out at the Craft Pimp Forum that she set up......
 
THANK YOU JOLY :)
