Oh my gosh. These beads are stunningly beautiful. They sparkle and sparkle and sparkle. The pink is beautiful. I wish I had hundreds of these beads as they are that wonderful!

About

I am an artisan glass bead maker.

I don't remember a time when I haven't been creating something... I love to make things by hand.

My grandmother taught me to sew and introduced me to seed beads while my grandfather taught me to crochet. He was also an artist and could draw anything... I think I got my ability to draw from him.

I started out making windows in stained glass and on a whim one day signed up for a bead making class at the local glass shop while shopping for supplies. I was instantly hooked and haven't touched my stained glass shop in years.

I owned my lampworking studio and supply for just over 10 years and have recently closed it to work from home

Every bead I make is done so with an open heart with care and attention or intention. I love what I do and I think it shows in my work. I hope you love creating with my beads as much I love making them.

    I grew up an artist... my grandmother taught to me sew and crochet and do other crafts. My grandfather could draw, I think I must have gotten my ability to draw from him. I have a degree in graphic design. I've been making beads since 2004.
