Kim Bastow's Profile
Hello! Welcome to my little “corner” of Etsy! My name is Kim, I am a nurse/lampworker/jewelry maker…and various other things. I am happily married to a wonderful man and we live in a small town in Missouri with our mini dachshunds Bobo, Minnie, and Mighty.
I have had an interest in glass bead making for quite some time and started out by making jewelry several years ago. I began making beads myself in June of 2006 and have been at it since. It is a wonderful form of stress release for me. I enjoy trying new designs and colors and I love getting special requests because sometimes it pushes me to places I may not push myself. All of the lampwork beads in my shop are created one by one by me and are kiln annealed for strength and durability (but please remember they are glass and could break).
Also be sure and stop…
