About Stephanie Bonniwell

When I first started making beads in 2003 I was absorbed with learning from Cindy Jenkins' book, 'Beads of Glass', Corina Tettinger's book, 'Passing the Flame', and Jim Kervin's book, 'Glass Beadmaking'. I was also fortunate to take classes from Ann Schermo Baldwin, Brad Pearson and Jen Geldard with a fun group of lampworking friends in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia.

I enjoy spending time on the torch whenever the opportunity presents itself. My professional career at a marine science field laboratory keeps me very busy from spring through fall but I try to sneak in time to make beads during the winter. I am a huge fan of working with and exploring glass from Double Helix Glassworks. Jed and Julie Hannay create exceptional glass items and I am proud to buy and use their products.

I invite you to look at the items in the Sold section of this site to see my past work. I also hope you enjoy my garden pictures in the album above and in my banner. I change my banner image periodically to show glimpses of nature and beauty from my day to day world. All my best, Steph

Last updated on February 4, 2013
All of my lampwork beads are created by hand using an oxygen-propane torch and glass from America (Double Helix Glassworks, Bullseye), Italy(Effetre, Vetrofond), Germany(Reichenbach, Lausha) and China(Creation is Messy). My glass beads are kiln annealed immediately after creation and are cleaned and inspected thoroughly before being presented in the store. I take great pride in offering my work to you.
