The Beginning...

I started beadwork back in 2004. I began in jewelry, selling on Ebay. I bought Lampwork beads to work with and became hooked. I had to learn!!! It wasn't easy, I was self taught. I bought a couple of books and magazines & just practiced. I work with soft glasses- Effetre, Vetrofond, CIM, Lauscha, Reichenbach, Thompson enamels with a COE of 104 and also with American Bullseye- COE90. I enjoy making a variety of different shapes- flowers, discs, rounds, tubes, tiles in vibrant eye catching colors. After each bead is created, it is immediately placed into a digitally controlled kiln (Paragon Bluebird). The bead holes are thoroughly cleaned with a dremel w/ diamond bit.

I am very excited to add fine silver components to my shop, as well as polymer clay toggles. This is a new venture and since it's new (to me), it is sometimes more fun than glass.

I worked as a full time beadmaker from 2005 to 2012. I am a little uncomfortable not having a guaranteed paycheck, so I went back to work in 2012. My hours are 11-7:30p, so there really isn't much time in the morning for me to make beads. It has become more of a hobby than business.
