Juicy Jewels began after buying a glass beaded necklace while on vacation in Boston. The happy colors and the art of the glass spoke to me. Having an artistic nature, I've played around and worked in a multitude of mediums including silk screening, wood working and decorating. I've always loved jewelry and so the marriage of art and jewelry has been perfect for me.
I've spent 2 years acquainting myself with technique, lampwork bead making and playing with color. I put many bracelets together, many times, until the piece sings to me: the stories I've written for each bracelet are my inspiration.
The name Juicy Jewels came to me while taking the lampwork class. While working over a white-hot flame, the glass literally becomes liquid and the colors, well, they are delicious to look at and what is more delicious than cold, fresh juice…
