About

Elegant and Eclectic—Inspired by Nature

After about eight years as a published freelance designer and author in the scrapbooking and crafting business, I decided that I needed a "hobby from my paying hobby." One day during a trade show, I saw someone demonstrating how to make glass beads and I just knew that was the one for me! I'd always been fascinated with watching glass blowing artists at work and appreciated the beauty of how light shimmers through glass like no other medium. So discovering that I could do something similar on a smaller scale was a dream come true!

Creating glass beads is based on a centuries-old art form called "lampworking" where a rod of glass is melted in a torch flame directly onto a steel rod, or mandrel (that makes the holes). In my shop you will find these unique handcrafted items, as well as my own metal charms and mixed media designs. These are offered separately for jewelry makers who would like to create their own designs, or as finished jewelry for those who are looking for great gifts for themselves or others.

You will see many different styles in my work—ranging from freeform organics to precise graphic patterns—it all basically depends on what Muse is visiting me at the time! Some of my greatest inspirations are nature, music and travel and I am known for my use of color and attention to detail.

Additional policies and FAQs
All of my designs are handmade by me and therefore, every item you purchase from my shop is guaranteed to be one-of-a-kind. I immediately anneal all my beads in a digitally controlled kiln for durability and strength, and clean the holes well with a Dremel tool.

My beads are not meant to be handled by small children and may present a choking hazard. Clean with a soft cloth or mild liquid soap and warm water — harsh chemical cleaners can affect any metallic silver glass surface effects.

My beads are all made in a smoke-free studio, but I do have two dogs who sometimes come in to keep my company while I pack up my orders.

I welcome custom orders, so please feel free to contact me anytime! *Ü*
