About ImperialMoth

On Etsy since 2015

As a little kid, my family would visit a local theme park once a year, which had a glassblowing studio/shop. I would stare in awe at the flameworked animal sculptures-- dragons rearing up, dolphins leaping, and impossibly intricate glass castles. I didn't know how or when, but I knew that some day, I would be melting glass of my own.

I didn't get behind my first torch until 2007, but in the meantime, I fell in love with beadwoven jewelry. My favorite components to use are tiny glass seed beads, natural stones, and miniature painted focals. I love the hundreds of small repetitive stitches upon which larger pieces are built, and most of all, I love dreaming up new designs. In 2007, I finally got a chance to take a glass beadmaking course, and since then, I've been combining my passion for glass with beadweaving.

    Hello, and welcome! I'm a lampworker, which means I use a torch to melt glass and shape it into things using tools, gravity, and a careful touch. A lot of beautiful things can be made with a bit of fire meditation and imagination!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

I am now including an anti-tarnish paper in the bottom of each box, to prevent discoloration of the sterling silver. You can store this paper along with your silver jewelry, preferably in a dry, dark storage space.

Sizing details

Generally I work SMALL, which is part of what makes my birds in particular so unique. Please be sure to check the size info, and to look at the comparison photos with the jewelry next to a dime for a size reference.

Quality of the glass

All of my glass beads are handmade by me, in my home lampworking studio. Directly after making, all of my beads are properly annealed in a digitally-controlled kiln for strength and durability.

The bird beads have some parts that stick out. A hard drop, or letting them bang against each other, could lead to breakage, so it's best to avoid these situations.

VAT import taxes

Please know that I do NOT collect VAT/import taxes, and you will be responsible for any additional charges that may apply to products you purchase.
