These are beautiful and a good weight. I expected them to be like the metal stampings I normally buy but these are substantial. I am very pleasantly surprised. Highly recommend this artist.

This bead is gorgeous!!!!!!! I am so pleased with it and now I have to match beads to do it justice, what a nice conundrum to have. The artist was very good at answering all my questions in an extremely timely manner too. Highly recommend!

About

My name is Jenny Friske-Baer and I started Divine Spark Designs in December of 2002. My goal is to provide beautiful, unique, handmade lampworked beads, glass art, resin and bronze metal clay pieces that will reflect the love and good energy gone into their creation and perhaps inspire others to discover their own Divine Spark within.

I started beading over 10 years ago (who can remember?) and I blame the addiction on my sister Gretchen! She got me started and soon after I often couldn't find that "special" bead for a project. All of you fellow beaders know what I'm talking about - that perfect bead that has to be a certain color or shape or texture to finish off a project (or maybe even start one!). So I decided to try and learn how to make them myself. After sitting at a Hot Head Torch for an afternoon under the expert and patient instruction of my dear friend Kandra, I was hooked! I played for about a year on the Hot Head - saved my money - and now I work on a Bethlehem Baracuda Torch as well as a Lynx Triple Mix torch from Glass Torch Technologies.

Everyday I feel blessed that I am able to sit down at the torch to try and create something that others might find beautiful and full of good energy. And I feel blessed that the love of my life enjoys working side by side with me creating his own wonderful works of art.

So I guess Divine Spark Designs includes all of us: Jenny and Len and our 2 crazy pups who provide a constant source of laughter and unconditional love!

But none of this would be possible without my faith in God, Spirit and the Angels - from whom the true "spark" really comes...
