Amazing. Totally amazing. And so beautifully packed.
I am an Alaskan/Arizonan lampwork glass artist that has always been
involved with media that allowed me to play with color; such as
weaving, embroidery, and working with fabrics.
Inspired by the Alaskan Native beadwork around me, I took up seed beadwork which sparked my interest in collectible beads and creating jewelry.
I then studied lampwork beadmaking which would allow for more originality in my jewelry designs.
Lampwork is the process of making handmade glass beads over a torch.
The result is a one of a kind, collectible little treasure. I am
inspired by the order of chaos, fractal imagery and organic patterns in nature and the Alaskan landscape.
I enjoy making components for jewelry designers that are earthy, organic and original but don't dominate the vision of the designer. In addition to lampworking I make torch fired enamel components.
I love to collect beads in my travels to Asia and find that the
use of Bali Silver Beads , Thai Hilltribe beads, and semi-precious
gemstones are compatible with my one of a kind lampwork beads.
Living near theTucson Gem & Mineral show gives access to a wonderful array of components to use in my own jewelry designs.
Currently I alternate between my two studios in Arizona and Alaska.
Designers are welcomed to post their jewelry made with my components on my Pinterest page "Designers using NuminosityBeads"
This is the shop where I'll be featuring my one of a kind lampwork beads, handmade components and jewelry.
You may also visit my shop numinosity.etsy.com for vintage finds and supplies.
