Kathy Perras' Profile
My name is Kathy Perras and I live and work in Portland, Oregon. I am lucky enough to make my living creating beads for those who love glass as much as I do. My beads are created in my Portland home studio. Each bead is a true labor of love.
It is my passion to create glass bead designs inspired by nature and it's many organic patterns. After years of creating sculptural work, I have happily settled in the area of organics. Lately, I have found my niche in making European Charm Beads for bracelets, etc. It has become a challenge to create a variety of designs on such a small bead.
For 15 years, I sold my work online and at various national bead shows. Currently, I sell my work on Etsy alone. I have spent more than 27 years creating various forms of glass art including 5 years as an offhand glassblower in Toledo, Ohio at the Toledo Museum of Art…
