flamekissedglass' Shop Announcement

Welcome to my Etsy store!

All of our beads and jewelry are made by my daughter and myself. We do not use manufacturers to create any of our items. Our beads are made one by one and our jewelry as well. We try and buy components like gemstones, crystals and findings from local store when we can. We will never be outsourced nor have any other name other than "Handmade" We are proud of that statement and stand by it! Please support your local artist.

I've always enjoyed beads of all kinds. When I was a child, I collected shiny rocks, shells, and anything that sparkled. I still do that to this day.
I never made anything with my acquired treasures but instead, had them all neatly organized in boxes.
In 2006 I suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (P.T.S.D.) and a friend that I knew made beautiful glass beads from her home. I asked her about it and she helped me start out. It brought peace to me and helped me hang on to life.

I've had this store for years but never really added anything to it but, last year I found myself in another crisis after losing my mom, sister, job, and marriage all in a 2 week period. It's been devastating. So, I got on the torch again to keep my mind busy. I decided to really put effort into listing everything into my store and try and sell by work until I can find outside work again. I continue to enjoy the peace it brings to me out of this chaotic world.
I thank you for finding me and I hope something out there catches your eye.
I am trying to move forward as I work through the pain from last year and my beads will continue to be one area of my life that I know there is joy, happiness and peace.
I have a wonderful daughter who encourages me and keeps me going on the days that everything I make ends up being worm food. She helps me design and sometimes makes beads of her own and many of her items, are in my store. She has a different outlook on the ways things should be put together so her stuff is easy to find :-)
