About

Handmade Lampwork Beads and Jewelry

Hi, I’m Amy and I’m a glassaholic.

Well, as far as addictions go, glass is not a bad one to have! I have been a lampwork glass bead addict (I mean artist) in 2005. I specialize in large hole beads that are compatible with all of the popular European bracelets. I also design and create sterling silver jewelry.

I’m a native Texan, spent 14 years in Ohio, and recently relocated to the Atlanta area. I’m a mother of two, a pilot’s wife, an artist, and a perfectionist. (I’m learning to let go of that, slowly….)

And I LOVE glass!!

I am a member of the ISGB, The International Society of Glass Beadmakers, and the Southern Flames, which is our local chapter of the ISGB. I am also a member of the Fire Divas. Making glass beads is the coolest artistic thing I’ve ever done, and I absolutely love it. I continue to learn and improve, and take classes from other bead artists as often as my schedule (and bank account) will allow.

Please let me know if there is anything special you are looking for, or if I can answer any questions about my work. I love custom orders. ♥

Welcome to Amy Sims Designs! Thank you so much for visiting.

I have been making jewelry for many many years, and began lampworking (making glass beads) in 2005. I am a member of the ISGB (International Society of Glass Beads) and Self-Representing Artist member SRA #S80.

All of my beads are created by me, one at a time, in my home studio in Marietta, Georgia. I use Moretti, Messy, Double Helix, Lauscha and sometimes Bullseye glass. I work on a Minor bench mounted oxygen/propane torch and an EX-15 oxygen concentrator. My beads are properly annealed in a digital kiln for durability and strength. If you would like to see what my studio looks like please visit my website at www.amysimsdesigns.com.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ A NOTE ABOUT MY STERLING SILVER ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Most of my silver was purchased between 2005-2010, when silver prices were much, much lower. I am no longer buying silver beads or Biagi items to resell. This means that if you see something you want, get it now because I won’t be getting more!

In addition, I have not raised the prices of my silver to reflect current market rates. Therefore my silver beads and chains are priced very well! This in NO way indicates a lower quality product. My silver is genuine sterling, NOT plated brass. ♥

(This applies to resale items only such as beads, clasps, chains, locks and spacers. This does NOT apply to raw silver that I purchase currently to make jumprings, wire jewelry, enameled jewelry, custom stamped bead caps, etc.)
♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
You will find many one-of-a-kind items in my shop, but you will also see “made-to-order” listings. These are photos of beads that I will make specifically for you when you place your order. I also do special orders. If you have something in mind you can convo me.

Additional policies and FAQs
♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
(Custom orders are currently not being accepted at this time.) I require payment in full before I start a custom order. I will do my best to accommodate requests, but I will not copy other lampwork artists’ beads, and I will let you know if something is beyond my ability. (like sculptural work—not really my thing!)

Please know that while I can usually duplicate my designs, they are hand made, and will have subtle differences in details and size. Please allow for +/- 1mm on custom beads.

I do not place reserves on beads that are currently listed. I am happy to remake beads that have been sold if it is possible to do so.

Also, although my beads are kiln annealed please keep in mind that they are glass and can break. They are also not appropriate for children under 5.
