Announcement   Welcome to our shop! We are a husband and wife team with over thirteen years of experience in lampworking, and members of the "All Handmade By Me" Team. Each piece is handmade by us from Italian and American glasses, and if you see a bead that you missed or have a specific color or design that you want, let us know. All of our beads are annealed for strength and durability, and my packing skills are so good that I've been accused of owning stock in a bubble wrap factory. Thanks for looking!

Can't be better; the Dynamic Duo of Mark & Susan and the MAGIC created in the Watkins Studio! Peruse the shop, and let the beads entice you, see the places you dream of; wear your ART, carry a little piece of that cool green forest, those sun-dappled waves, the shine of sea glass that beckons you from golden sands, WITH YOU to enhance and soften the often rough edges of Life in our hectic world... or ask for what is special and meaningful to YOU to take form in the Watkins Studio. Mark & Susan are deeply talented, sincerely accommodating, have the highest standards in both their art and their customer service. They ship quickly and securely. Highest kudos. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Picture: bracelet/earrings set made from peridot & Kelly Green "Shamrock" Watkins Studio beads, genuine saltwater pearls, gold fittings & Swarovski crystals.

About

Glasswork ... endless possibilites.

When Mark and I met six years ago, neither one of us realized that we had finally found another artist. My specialty was glass lampworking, and his was wood scrollwork.

He tried to teach me scrollworking, but I was hopeless at it. I taught him glasswork, and he found a whole new art. Its a good thing, since I am no longer able "health-wise" to make the glass. All of our current work is his physical manipulation of the glass with my design input and shop management. A marriage made in heaven!

Thank you so much for looking and being interested in us, we really appreciate it! Mark sincerely appreciates all of your compliments about his beautiful glass.

Take care! ~ Susan and Mark

    We are a husband and wife team, making lampwork glass designs. I’ve had over ten years of experience in the craft, and Mark is just starting out, but his work is amazing even to me (and my having to sleep on the couch is no factor here.)

Welcome!

Watkins Studio beads are individually handmade in our Olathe, Kansas studio, and we use only the best quality of Italian and German glasses, minerals and gold/silver materials. Even though our beads are handmade, with ten years of glasswork behind us, our products are almost phreakishly consistent. We have a very strict quality control process and if a bead can't pass Susan's critical eye, it will never be seen in our shop.
