About

Then, there was..... Glass!!

I am Carol Evans, lampwork glass bead artist and jewelry designer. I grew up on the coastal shore of North Carolina with my siblings and a loving mother who always encouraged me to explore my creative side. I remember long walks on the beach searching for the perfect shells to make into a necklace...always on the lookout for a matching pair for earrings. My constant need to create followed me into my college years. This afforded me the opportunity to grow and explore various interests and mediums setting the stage for my aesthetic as an artist.

I have worked with some form of glass for years ... creating soldered art pendants, mosaics and using glass beads to weave, wrap and string into unique wearable pieces. I discovered the lampworking process and was instantly hooked. I love the mesmerizing look and feel of art glass ... from small flame worked beads, like the ones I create, to large intricate sculptures. I lose all track of time when I am at my torch ... melting simple colored glass rods into small works of art. I use these handmade glass beads and combine them with metals, glass enamels and vintage components to form my indie jewelry collection. Simple forms, textures and colors are the basis for each of my designs. I am mainly self-taught with an ever present interest in new techniques ... always open to creative guidance and suggestions. Looking for new inspiration at every possible moment.
