Blanche and Guy ... turning glass and clay into wearable art!

Hello! We are a happy couple creating glass and polymer clay beads along with silver and beaded jewelry. Guy is the glass bead maker and I (Blanche) am the polymer clay artist. We are both self-taught and are always working on exploring our craft to improve it more and more. We have fun doing what we do!

We are amazed and grateful that so many of our beads have traveled to so many corners of the Earth and that jewelry designers are creating with our special pieces.

In January 2017, after 7 years in Israel, we made a big move back to America and settled in eastern Pennsylvania. We are loving it here and are so glad to be back in the USA!

Thank you so much for reading and for your support of our glass and clay art!

    I made my first bracelet in 2003 and have been in love with making jewelry from Guy's beads ever since. While living in Israel, I learned how to make beads from polymer clay so now I use glass and polymer clay in my work!

    Guy started bead making as a stress reliever. He was enthralled with the flame and the melting glass. He's taught himself many new techniques over the years and enjoys his time at the torch. When not making beads, you can find him on a horse!

Hello! Thanks for shopping in our Etsy store!

WELCOME to our glass bead world!

We are a happy couple working together in the colorful world of glass beads.

Guy has been making these adorable works of art since 2003, when he taught himself from a book we got from the library!

I am the lucky one who gets to create funky and colorful jewelry from Guy's awesome beads.

It's so much fun hearing him in his studio, the kiln clicking away as it's working, his torch silently strong as a tiger (it's called a Hell Cat after all!) as I sit over here in my studio, listing new things in the shop, packing up orders, organizing new beads he's brought to me, or making new wild and fabulous pieces of jewelry!

We enjoy what we do and are so happy that now we have a little (not so baby anymore) boy in our lives who makes us want to sell even more beads so we can spend more time with him as he grows!
