Vintage Assemblage combining rescued vintage jewelry & my own lampwork beads

I love glass... all kinds.. from old bottles, depression glass, crystals, stained glass, glass from Venice.. beautiful colours, all kinds of textures. I have quite a collection of vintage jewelry and love to thrift for even more, some of which is broken. I like to combine my beads and the vintage pieces. The old chains are pretty fabulous and they just do not make the same quality of chain any more !! They all have a story to tell.
I started out learning the art of stained glass in Montreal from some of the Masters there. When I moved to Toronto I learned how to fuse glass, then when I moved here to Kelowna I fell in love with lamp working. After making all those beads I had to do something with them so I combined them with bits and baubles of vintage jewelry and there you have it... That is my story !!

I do workshops in Mosaics at the Canadian Mental Health Drop in Centre and do the occasional workshop with a fabulous bunch of seniors at the Seniors Residences.

I love to share my knowledge with anyone who is interested. Please view my blog at: www. torchfairy [!at] where I post tutorials on things I have made.

I hope you have enjoyed reading my "story" if you have any questions please e-mail me.

I use a digitally controlled kiln to anneal my beads and an electric Dremel to clean each one.
I try to use only unmarred vintage pieces in my creations but occasionally there will be a small blemish or mark on them. Just remember this means that they have had a previous life and now they can be loved again.
