About

Hi - I'm a lampwork, glass and jewelry artist. I love moving from one media to another and never seem to make the same thing twice. I've been making artisan lampwork beads for years and take special care to ensure all of my beads and designs last for many generations. I guarantee everything I make forever....really!

I am a Self Representing Artist (SRA H-93), as well as Self Representing Artist Jewelry Designer (SRAJD #1041) and am against mass production of artwork. I realize the rarity of actually creating something that has never been done, so I try not to think in terms of who copies who and follow my muse each time I create, therefore, you won't see many repeats in my studio or a "signature" bead. This tends to keep me in the lowlights as an artist, but when I am governed by a style or design, my creative pleasure is diminished. I hope you can enjoy my art as I…

I hope you can enjoy my art as I do, spontaneous, everchanging and pure.

I live in a small town in the Kaibab National Forest near the Grand Canyon. Its slow pace and natural environment suits me perfectly. My little house is full of light and colors peek from every corner in multiple forms of glass. I have 2 dogs who fill my life with warmth and companionship. We live a peaceful existence in our little Quiet Haven.

I hope you enjoy my designs. As you come to know me as a seller, you will see that I am generous with freebies, and will refund shipping costs in many situations. You might get a special discount coupon card with your item for future use or a refund thru paypal of part or all of the shipping you paid. I treat my customers as friends and try to do right by them.

sincere thanks, Darlene
