Working with glass since 2011. The possibilities are endless and I am always striving to learn more and try new things. My studio has expanded over the years as I have purchased more tools and upgraded my equipment. Now I am set up beautifully in my home. My inspiration comes from shapes, colors and nature. Besides the joy of creating, I love to know I am making things that bring happiness to others.

Welcome and thank you for stopping in to GabysGlassworks. All of my beads are made in my little studio near Cherry Hill New Jersey. I work with soda lime glass and beads are made one by one by melting and winding the glass onto a mandrel which in the end, forms the bead hole. One bead can take anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour or longer to make. My prices reflect the time taken to make the bead and the cost of the glass. All pieces are placed into a kiln where they are kept at a high temperature for several hours and then very slowly the heat is allowed to cool over many hours. This helps to stabilize the glass and remove any stress fractures.
