This pendant is even more beautiful in person than I anticipated from the picture. The colors and design are extraordinary. I am familiar with Liliana's work--her designs are unique, creative and true wearable art.

It is a very good tutorial, especially for very beginners like me. The images and the statements are first class.

About

I have a deep passion for lampwork glass, metals & design. I see myself doing it forever because the learning never stops & inspiration is limitless.

Making glass beads is like choreography to me. I plan and use my skills to conceptualize a bead, and in turn the glass, its colors, and the heat—just like dancers—build on my vision with their own naturally conditioned interpretations. I like that I am not 100% in control: the glass surprises me sometimes in ways that influence my thinking and make me a better artist – an artist who speaks the language of the glass but never speaks for the glass.

From simple, round to hollow, multi-layered, complex geometric design beads, they reflect and transform my everyday while instantiating a moment in time, a feeling, an experience or a wish. These beads reflect conversations, people and relationships that are part of my surroundings.

The colors of the glass are sometimes outspoken and self-identifying and other times transcendental, quietly nurturing the bead as a whole. I work primarily with soft glass (Moretti) from Murano, Italy, and the color palette available in that glass is endless. Texture is another passion of mine that keeps fascinating me by ways it influences how the glass presents itself to the world and its wearer. Between a smooth, glossy look and a textured surface, rich in relief and dynamic, the beads inspire ways in which I think of reality from day to day: sometimes I go along, and sometimes I ask many questions, disturbing the surface and always learning something.

In spite of my continuous look out for expansion of my intellectual and physical capacities, the gravity of lampworking and glass beads has been pulling me more and more toward its center. I have been growing in the imagining and the making of glass beads because this process and its results constitute art for me and art has no limits. I feel that I have finally found a place where I can be limitless and always transforming and that place is behind a flame. With a mandrel and a glass rod in hand, I can go where no one has gone before :-) and explore beauty, identity and skill in just one glass bead.
