Art Attacks and Strokes Bead Lunar Eclipse
This season, approach buying clothing and accessories as making a statement about you. An easy way to spice up a wardrobe is with jewelry– Not just any jewelry and let’s skip the bling please. Check out the more unusual presentations: look for pieces that are truly "outside the box" in terms of presentation and construction. Where would find such artwork+jewelry?
Art Attacks and Strokes.com is a one-stop museum, wish-book, idea book and lots more. It’s more than jewelry but for this blog — it’s ONLY about the jewelry and the elegant simplicity of select pieces– and they are made out of pyrex glass mixed with different minerals to create colors.
Chad Pitts is the master designer, artist and head magician (read THE magician) and creative genius behind Art Attacks and Strokes. There is more to the name of his company than pun-ful humor.. there is a message.

The goal at Art Attacks & Strokes is not only to create and promote glass art, but also to support environmental projects and art awareness programs. Art Attacks & Strokes is in the process of developing an “art-reach” program, with the goal of inspiring and evoking creativity in people from all walks of life. We particularly desire to reach individuals who ordinarily might not be introduced or exposed to the healing and therapeutic benefits of creating.
One of the leading factors of health problems is STRESS, and one of the best ways to relieve stress is through the creative process. Creative expression can come in any form: from painting, sculpting and glass blowing to dancing, building, to cooking and making music. Thank you for your interest in Art Attacks & Strokes. We hope you are pleased and inspired by what you see!
For himself, for others, he works and he teaches glass-blowing to help others create lovely objects. While the act of creation is so truly magical, it takes more than an act of winding, blowing, twisting the glass to turn out these beautiful pieces. It takes a creative mind– thoughtful of color and how minerals interact with glass and are affected by heat.
This gorgeous heart is done in glass with gold that turns pink in the firing process. It’s so amazing.
This is the Water Cross– named for the water type tones in it.
What’s so unique is that piece is different and he does custom work too — so you can have something made for yourself, for a gift (Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Bridal, Birthday) that’s truly special.
This is the Rose Petal Pendant
There are othershapes that he works with– tablets and spheres are really interesting and they lay nicely at the neck and are very low-key but can draw a lot of attention.
I find the jewelry to be phenomenally gorgeous. It’s unique and I have both a tablet and a bead and they look different when threaded on a gold or silver chain but they also work on rubber or leather string too. So it’s up to you how you want it to look and it’s as easy as threading the bead to change the look from funky to polished.
So don’t have a heart attack– have an ART ATTACK and shop your heart out at Art Attack and Strokes.
