This is a vibrant hand sculpted lampwork goddess bead. She was created using a variety of Italian and American soft glass, including Double Helix Clio for the deep pink/magenta tones. She stands 1-3/8 in tall and was created on a 3/32nd inch mandrel.

My little goddesses were inspired by a trip to the UK where I first became aware of the tiny prehistoric carvings, found throughout Europe and Russia, known collectively as the Venus Figurines. Their plump stature and ample proportions are directly influenced by one of the most famous of these 'Venus Figurines', the Venus of Willendorf (last photo).

The Venus of Willendorf carving was discovered at an Austrian paleolithic site in 1908 and is estimated to have been made between 24,000 and 22,000 BCE.

My glass goddess beads are designed as reminders of the timeless power of the feminine.

(Venus of Willendorf not included!)

Photographed outdoors on a late California autumn afternoon.

All my lampwork beads are made by me, one at a time, in my home studio. They are annealed according to the glass manufacturer's recommendations in my digitally controlled kiln and are inspected and cleaned with a diamond tip dremel.
