My name is Amy, and I'm a glass bead maker from Victoria, BC. My mom and I are "The Two Glassy Ladies". She makes fused and slumped glass items, and I mostly make beads (so pretty much everything you will see here on Etsy will be my stuff - although you never know, something of my mom's may show up here at some point!) Locally, we sell together at craft shows and markets.
My beads are made out of art glass (mostly Italian), on a special table top torch. I do all of my work by hand in my studio which is in my garage. Each bead is kiln-annealed in a digitally controlled kiln straight out of the torch, carefully cleaned, and inspected for flaws.
The beads you are purchasing are always ready-made, unless it is specified otherwise in the listing or you are ordering something custom that I have to make up for you. In most cases, the beads you are purchasing…
