Creating is what I am, this is what makes me happy.

I love to create and design. It is a very meditative activity and gives me peace and joy.
This year I made a new work area that holds all my tools, and supplies. Something about having a special place to do what you love is wonderful.

I create handmade lampwork beads, in my studio. I use coe 104 glass , silver foil and hand made murrini. Murrini are similar to polymer clay murrini but created in glass. If you can imagine layer on layer creating a design in glass in a large ball on till finally you pull the molten glass ball in either direction so it stretches out.. once it cools you snip small pieces off and each little round piece will have the exact same design. Phew that is a lot of work. So Prices may be a little higher for those pieces. Also some glass used are specialty glass, that are very high priced as well.. for instance pink glass is created with actual gold to create that color. So I will add to my listings this information when needed.

All my beads are kiln annealed for durability. I love trying and doing new things with glass, I don't think I have enough time in my life to use up all the glass I have but I sure can try!

I am adding a new feature to my shop, I will offer different types of wired bails to my focals.. Some will have crystals, silver findings , with sterling silver wire. If you feel you just want to purchase a finished piece. That will be a choice on the drop down menu. Soon to be available.

My other venue of creating involves Precious Metal Clay. This material is amazing!
It is Fine Silver, or Sterling Silver mixed in a organic clay that holds tiny balls of silver.

Which once the piece is constructed and is dried it can then be refined by sanding , These pieces are then put in a kiln at the appropriate temperature for two hours to burn off the organic material that holds these small balls of silver and will come together to form a silver piece of jewelry.

This is just a small over view of the process.. with time I will add photos of the process of creating.

    I love to create and design I have pretty much done it all my life. Making lampwork beads for 8 years, and love the possibilities of this medium. My new love is Precious Metal Clay which I started two years ago.

Hi Welcome to my Etsy Shop. This is where I sell my little works of glass art to use in your own creative jewelry. I will also be sharing other creative fun items for you to consider.
My goal is to sell findings and beads for those who love to create their own
master pieces. Also to include and offer various wiring bail options for focal beads and silver pieces so they can be used straight out of the box and hung on your own chain.

So come back often, see whats new.. Thankyou for stopping by , sincerely Diane Hart :0)
