"Creating truth like glass from a furnace of inspiration - in these stones, horizons sing." - Gwyneth Lewis

I make all of my glass beads from Bullseye glass and occasionally fine silver, copper, and other inclusions. Each bead is handcrafted at a temperature of thousands of degrees in the flame of my torch. There's something just magical about the moment when solid rods of glass start to soften in the flame, and colors strike and change depending on the type of flame or the chemical properties of other colors or materials they touch in the bead.

The rest of my jewelry, yarn, and crafts are also all handmade and unique, from a wide range of reclaimed and erratic materials.

Note: All my beads are kiln annealed for strength and durability, unless otherwise noted. They come with a lifetime guaranty: For so long as I own a torch, if any glass made by me should crack (without being dropped, and I'll trust your honor on that), let me know and I will create a custom replacement piece for you of equal value.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or custom order requests.
