Announcement   Welcome to Basha Beads, featuring my handmade lampwork glass beads.
Creating beads that replicate Ancient Glass is what I love to do and is my primary focus.
I also just play with color, design and shape for more contemporary pieces. It's a joy for me to be able to combine two lifelong passions, glass and beads.

While attending UCLA, I saw an exhibit of ancient glass and, in that moment, knew my dream and goal...to create that ancient look with my own hands. When I moved to Oregon and learned to make glass beads, I experimented for two years and finally created a glass bead that looked like a piece of ancient glass excavated from an archaeological dig.

My Basha Beads usually have a matte finish for that ancient, organic and tribal look and feel. Even my contemporary beads which are beautifully bright and colorful, have a rustic look.

I consider myself a colorist and think of my beads as little pieces of abstract art.

Enjoy
Barbara
