Here you'll find lampworked glass beads hand crafted in the flame of a torch one by one. I make, anneal and clean all my beads in my South Florida studio.
I love color and form. Many of my beads feature the shimmering, color-changing mystique of silver-rich glass. I use it whenever possible. I also love precision in the shapes of my beads and strive to create crisp edges on my square and lentil beads, which is not easy as glass wants to be round.
If you've always wanted to learn off-loom bead weaving, you'll also find a variety of beading kits based on designs I created for classes. They are easy patterns that come with complete, full color, class-tested directions and all required materials in a reusable clear plastic case.
