Welcome to my Etsy shop! I have been creating flameworked beads in West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle since 2005. My work has been featured in "Bead Review 2". I also have done some glass testing for Creation is Messy, and my beads can be seen on their website at . Glass is my sanity! In my "other life" I am a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner in a busy pediatrics practice in my community. I have certifications in both adult and pediatric emergency nursing as well as in trauma nursing. After a crazy busy day in the office, I love the zen-like relaxation that comes from working with molten glass in the flame - nothing like concentrating on keeping hot glass in place to take your mind off of a bad day!
The dichro stringers and dichro shards in my store are my creation and can be found no where else! These are a wonderful, worry-free way to add the sparkle of dichro to your lampwork without the usual hassle of working with dichroic glass. All the dichro is double or triple encased so no more worries about scumming.

Shipping for Dichro stringers in the US is $7.00 by priority mail. Stringers are shipped in PVC pipe and bubble wrap, to ensure that they arrive at their destination in one piece. Over the past 8 years, I have shipped stringers all over the world, and have not had any issues with breakage. I will ship internationally, with rates based on the country to be shipped to. Basic shipping for jewelry and beads is via USPS first class. If your shipping payment exceeds $7.00, shipping will be upgraded to USPS Priority. If you pay more than $2.00 over the actual cost of shipping, this amount will be refunded to you through Paypal.
