About the Designer
Julie Fountain is the award winning artist behind Beach Art Glass, an eye-catching collection of stunning glass beads. Each bead is handmade and cleverly transformed into an intricate piece of “heirloom quality” jewellery or homeware.
Although each piece is individually made Julie’s style is distinctive and easily recognisable. The quality of work shines through in each necklace, bracelet and pair of earrings produced.
Whilst Julie’s work is clearly reminiscent of the seashore, her designs are also highly influenced by the glass itself. What originally starts out as simple swirls of colour and shapes, over time develop into distinctive and highly focused pieces of artwork that delight customers all over the world.
In November 2015, after only 6 months of trading as Beach Art Glass, Julie won the Enterprising Worcestershire Creative Business Award and she has not looked back since.
