These are really cool and have a very rustic look to them......I am using them in bracelets and earrings.

I wanted some different colors of these discs in glossy glass were just the ticket. Also like them too.

These discs were perfect. Exactly what I wanted and I love the rustic or natural look and colors of them.

About

I get to make beads. Not a bad life.

How did I get started? I get asked that all the time. So what's the answer...I was a Sculpture major at UNCG and after graduating I didn't know exactly what it was I wanted to do. But I did know that I wanted to Create!! I was watching the Carol Duvall Show and they were making glass beads that day on the show.
"Oh!...... THAT'S how they make the beads!!!" ...And I was off, looking for classes near-by. I found a class at the Sawtooth Center for the Arts.The teacher lit the torch and I started to drool! I knew this was for me. After the class, I applied for and received a Regional Artist Grant from the Catawba County Council for the Arts. This gave me the money I needed to get started. And so it began. I would get up in the morning and make beads, then go into work. I did this until I started selling my beads and my " other job" started getting in the way of my bead making.
I started doing shows, quite the "other job" and here I am over 15 years later doing something I love. I have found my passion and I feel like the luckiest person in the world.
