About TeresaBrittainBeads

On Etsy since 2020
Video summary: A quick virtual tour of my studio, plus photos of how I make a basic dot bead.

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.
