Robert & Brenda's Profile

About

We are a husband and wife team, who work together, live, love and laugh together. We build storage sheds, studios, and cabins here in Oregon, and have a great time doing it. Brenda became very intersted in locally made artisan glass beads about eight years ago, and gently nudged me in the direction of making glass beads for her. Naturally, I was reluctant. But with time and some added nudging, it has become a passion for me as well. It is very relaxing to come in from a day of building, and sit down to create something on a much smaller scale. Now, as a team, we are making beads and jewelry together. Brenda makes very beautiful jewelry. We truly live in a very beautiful place, and we draw incredible inspiration from Oregon. All of our beads and poison bottles are made in our studio here on the banks of the Coquille river and we kiln anneal them for safety. Our poison bottles are our personal favorites and we will wrap them in elkhide…

All of our beads and poison bottles are made in our studio here on the banks of the Coquille river and we kiln anneal them for safety. Our poison bottles are our personal favorites and we will wrap them in elkhide (just convo us and tell us you want us to )so you can carry them as a talisman in your pocket or make them into a piece of jewelry you can be proud of. Any silver in our jewelry is .925 sterling silver and our stones are good quality. And we have started using all brass (but not pot metal)for some of our jewelry we age it ourself it is less expensive than sterling or gold and it is 95% reclaimable so it makes me feel a little greener. We ship an extra cork with each bottle in case it breaks or is lost, they will be hard for you to find and we want you to use your bottle.
We try very hard to have new ideas and our own original ideas. We can also be found on the website www.lampwork.gotop100.com We love etsy!! See our sisters site dreamimage on etsy for beautiful photography. Remember your jewlry is glass and it has been kiln annealed to protect against breakage but do not let your children play with it.
