Milica Bubanja's Profile

About

Hello, my name is Milica Bubanja and I’m full time beadmaker and metalsmith artist. I’m in love with colors and I find a glass as a perfect medium to express how much I love the life and every creature in this world. I see the magic of the glass in it’s unique properties to reflect the light through colors, to achieve most beautiful and detailed patterns and effects. Beadmaking is like meditation for me. It relax me, it makes me feel connected with myself. Making art beads of hot glass is my way of living in the present moment.

All my beads are made with love in my studio in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia (EU). I use only the finest quality glass to create my beads: Moretti, CiM, Lauscha, and best silvered glass Double Felix. I also made my own murrini and stringers, in order to archieve unique and recognizable artwork.

Each color of glass is individually melted and manipulated over the flame of a torch. The molten glass is dotted, twisted, and shaped. In most of my designs, you can see fine straight-line stringer work. All of the beads are then kiln annealed overnight to ensure the stability of the glass, and finally they are meticulously cleaned and closely inspected.

I also made fine silver unique beads. Every bead is carved by hand, without mass producction tools, molfds and textures. So, you can be sure you are looking at very unique and authentic warable art.

I love a challenge. I love the process. I love the results. I hope that you will too.
