On Vacation until the End of April. Thank you for understanding.


Terri was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania and from an early age surrounded by talented people.

Her interest in warm glass and lampwork beads started in 2004 after a hurricane ravished their neighborhood. With broken glass throw about she began recycling it into warm glass works of art. Her first pieces were sculptures, wind chimes and beads created using the broken windows. Soon others were interested in her work and it unlocked new opportunities for her creativity. Everyday brought a new challenge to take raw glass and turn it into something special and unique. It was something she could take pride in and call her own. Her training came from the public library, the internet and her eagerness to learn. Over the years her love for family, curiosity with nature, and belief in giving back have influenced her work.
Some of her achievements include a 1st place award in the beaded object contest at the International Society of Glass Bead Makers 2009 Gathering. And just recently one of her beads were chosen to travel into space on the Atlantis Space Shuttle. Team beads of Courage - NASA Astronauts will carry the bead into space.
As in the past Terri's free spirit, personality, and determination will guide her art into the future and thanks to the wonderful work Team Beads of Courage is doing it will take her art into outer space.
