All about me...

“Pure gold put in the fire comes out it proved gold; genuine faith put through this suffering comes out proved genuine. When Jesus wraps this all up, it’s your faith, not your gold, that God will have on display as evidence of his victory.”
1 Peter 1:7

Welcome to Formed In Fire Boutique, I am so glad you stopped by! My name is Michelle Mahre and I have been a drapery seamstress for 32 years and making glass beads for nearly ten. When I am not creating designer masterpieces, I work in various studios and gyms teaching Holy Yoga, Barre, BodyFlow, and Silver Sneakers. My business is located in my home in Colorado Springs that I share with my husband Tom and our Anatolian Shepherd mix Sampson.

This page was originally created almost 10 years ago when I first started making glass beads for jewelry. I have a stock supply of beads that I create and fire in my own kiln that are ready to be assembled into a jewelry collection of earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. But Formed in Fire Boutique is not just about glass beads anymore!

As time has evolved, I have added other items to my collection. Holy Yoga has become a very intricate part of my life as I have learned to become more centered and rooted in my Savior Jesus, so it only seemed natural to start creating yoga items that would help others explore the same passion. And because I love personal touches, I also create beautiful decorator pillows and hand bags. I offer many different designs and patterns to choose from, or you can pick through items that I have already created.

Much like seasons in life we all experience change and I am facing yet another one that I just recently found out about. One month ago I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Grade 3 Triple Negative breast cancer. Life has been moving incredibly fast ever since then. I have many, many months of chemo ahead of me before I have a bilateral mastectomy. So I have decided to slow down the craziness of my normal life and press into my creativity. It keeps me calm, clears my head, and gives me something to positively focus on while my treatments have my body feeling other ways. Your purchases through my boutique gives me mental clarity, supports me emotionally as well as financially. And I am so very grateful for your investment!

God’s blessings to you!
Michelle

Things I love to spend my time doing are, camping, whitewater rafting, down hill skiing, hiking, biking, working out, stalking people on facebook and pinning things I love on Pinterest, and of course playing with glass and beads

Welcome to Formed In Fire Lampwork Beads and Jewelery. My name is Michelle Mahre and I have been melting glass on my minor torch with oxygen concentrator since 2009. I use a variety of different glass such as Effetre, CIM, Double Helix and Reichenbach. Most beads are made on a 3/32" mandrel with the exception of smaller beads which will have a 1/16" hole. All beads are annealed in a digitally controlled kiln for strength and durability. The glass studio is located in my home in Colorado Springs with my husband Tom, dog Sadie and cat Fuzzy.
