Review:

"I have been an admirer of Laurel Skye's work ever since I first saw it a few years ago. Her distinctive whacky style is comic and haunting - images of her work stay with you. Laurel gives a new twist to millefiori, those glass beads that have been around at least since the first century. In Laurel's hands they are transformed and incorporated into weird and wonderful creations, often macabre, but always memorable" -- Martin Cheek, internationally renowned mosaic artist and author
