I started developing my Nightmare Insomnia series a few years ago out of frustration for my daughter's nightly nightmares about spiders and our resulting lack of sleep. One day as I torched, I was stewing over how tired I was of the whole thing and suddenly my beads had stylized "spiders" attacking them. While the days of spider nightmares are mostly behind us, my daughter is very proud of inspiring this series.

PLEASE NOTE: the lighting used to photograph this bead may make it appear differently than in other types of lighting situations. I try my best to make the colors look as accurate as possible to my monitor's settings. The photo is also "blown up" so you are able to see fine details.

All beads are handmade by me in my Indiana studio and probably not perfect. However, all my beads have been annealed in a digitally controlled kiln so they should not crack apart. That being said, if you drop it on tile or concrete, granite or marble or other hard surfaces, it WILL chip the surface because it is GLASS. Please do not let children chew on beads as they are GLASS and potential choking hazards. The holes have been cleaned of all bead release using a diamond reamer on a Dremel.

Etsy address and Paypal address must match and will be shipped to that address. Exceptions can be made on an individual basis. 1st class shipping to the US and Canada is free. Insurance is extra. Priority is extra.

It is important to me that you are satisfied with your purchase. If, for any reason, you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me within 7 days of receipt for an exchange or refund.
