THE REST OF THE STORY:
I create a variety of glass beads: fish, bees, dogs, fireflies, bugs, ocean themes, and my favorite... chicken beads.

I have been working with beads as an art form since 1987. I started lampworking in April of 2003. I work on a propane-oxygen torch, using soft glass (soda lime). I work with Effetre, Vetrofond, CiM, and silvered glass.

Proper ventilation and eye safety are important when lampworking. Please see my About Me page on my site for more safety information if you are considering taking up lampworking. All lampwork beads are properly kiln annealed for durability and lasting enjoyment.
