About Us

We are a family of artist creating art, jewelry and other unique crafts; we work in all kinds of mediums and with recycled materials to create original works of art.

William Henry also a lifelong artist is skilled in the art of hand crafting glass beads but also finds a creative outlet in wood working, wood burning and mosaic and inlay work. W.H has learned the fine craft of glass bead making over the years from is close friend Glenn who in his early years was a professionally trained scientific glass blower. Glenn has handed down his advanced knowledge about glass and using particular types of glass and Pyrex to create strong and lasting glass works. We call W.H’s beads “color blind beads” because he was born color blind. Amazingly this has only been an asset to his creations and his beads are bold, colorful and unique.

I am an artist at heart though I have spent most of my working life in the medical field. I did sneak away from my biology course work here and there to take some honor level art classes in collage but never perused a degree in art. After collage I began work in intraoperative monitoring of neurosurgery and find the work very rewarding though I always take time to create art and make jewelry during my free time and have learned most of my beading and craft skills from my parents. I have recently moved to the Netherlands and live here with my passionate Italian husband and my two wonderful little boys. I work less in the medical field now and more on family and creating, I find inspiration while traveling through Europe, Nature, science and family.

We work together on designs and also explore our own individual ideas creating a unique and divers presentation of jewelry, art and craft works,

Thanks for your interest in our Etsy site! We are just getting started!
