These earrings were a Christmas present for my mom. She loved them and the whole family admired them. Really pretty and well-made.

The necklace was a gift shipped directly to the recipient, so I didn't see it in person. The birthday girl said she liked it. Fast shipping and my birthday message was included.

It looks exactly as pictured. Is very pretty. Shipped and received quickly. Will keep my eye on this site for future gifts.
I broke a window pane and became a glass beadmaker.
In late 1995, I cracked a window pane while using a heat gun to strip paint off a window in the house we were renovating. When I went to buy a replacement pane, I saw an advertisement in the glass shop that would lead me down an unexpected and very different path. “Learn to Make Glass Beads,” the sign said. I was intrigued and signed up on the spot.
What was I thinking? I had a full-time corporate job, a toddler, and an old house that needed a lot of work. But I couldn’t pass up the chance to spend a weekend learning a new skill and doing something just for me.
I immediately discovered the joy of playing with molten glass over a flame and experimenting to find out “what would happen if.” I came home from the class with a torch, safety glasses, and rods of colored glass.
My beads are included in the book "1000 Glass Beads: Innovation & Imagination in Contemporary Glass Beadmaking," and I was featured on an episode of "Tennessee Crossroads," produced by Nashville Public Television. I have taught at John C. Campbell Folk School, Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, and for beadmaking groups throughout the region.
