Hi, I'm Debra! I make colorful glass lampwork beads of candy, chocolates, and berries. The sweetness and realism of these glass beads is so palpable that most people can't help but show off a cheerful smile when they see them.

-- Announcements --
This year I'll be bringing on a new collection called French Provence. If this sounds enticing, keep checking back! I'll be releasing it when we return from our travels late-Spring 2013.


-- About Me --
I discovered lampwork in 2004 at an arts festival. I fell in love with the thought of creating all the beads I imagined. If I couldn't find it, I would just make it! Through my new skill, I found creative freedom and self-expression. When I began making candies and berries, I had finally found my passion!

My playful studio is a safe-haven when I need some fun in my life. You open the door and rows of sparkling jars, filled to the brim with little sweets, and colorful glass rods and powders beckon creative adventure. It's a world where I can become a child again, exciting my soul through the process of making.

In my free time, I feel drawn to give of myself. My husband and I adopt rescued dogs. I mentor for the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, an endeavor I've enjoyed for 10 years. And I regularly donate beads to Beads of Courage, an organization supporting children who are going through cancer treatment. I also enjoy pursuing my own development with interests including karate (I have a black belt now), traveling, graphic design, and website creation.

-- Bragging Rights --
1st prize in my category at Bead and Button in Milwaukee for a beautiful box of glass chocolates I created. Actress, Anne Heche purchased some of my candy jewelry for her nieces from New Small and Sterling, a glass blowing studio on Granville Island that displays some of my work.
