About

Beads Make the World Go 'Round

I started making glass beads in the corner of my laundry room on a hot head torch in 2001. After a year of playing around on my own, I took a 5 day class with Sage and Tom Holland. That was the first time I saw anyone else even make a bead. I came home with a vast knowledge of how beads are made and designed and my first Minor torch.
At that point in time, you just didn't find help and information anywhere online to guide you through trials and errors. That class was a huge step for me and I haven't looked back since. At first I just sold a little bit here and there in eBay and then started taking spacer orders. While trying to keep things organized, I decided to start a color chart of all the available glass colors. (You can find that by searching 'serena color gallery' on the web.) I knew it would be helpful to my customers and to lampworkers too.
Now, the beads support the whole family. When you buy from me, you are aiding and abetting in the endeavors of the entire Thomas family. We are an intimate trio working to bring you high quality lampwork beads for your versatile creations.

Hello and welcome. All of the beads you find at Serena's Beadery are handmade by me, Serena Thomas. The name Serena's Beadery was derived from the idea of a glass bakery. I deliver to you fresh baked handmade glass beads. I bring you years of experience and knowledge from the torch. All orders are lovingly and carefully created, cleaned, inspected, and packaged so that you can be nothing but pleased with your purchase.
Need help finding something, just ask. Or wander over to my color gallery and see if you can't find what you are looking for. (Search Serena color gallery to find it.)

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: I will NOT be including a printed invoice with your package. Customs has mistakenly assumed that any use of the word silver to describe my beads means something it doesn't. I do not want you to be charged unfairly for your lampwork beads with fine silver or silvered ivory.

Should you need to return anything, please notify me BEFORE shipping anything back. Refunds will not be processed if I have not been notified first. Shipping fees will not be refunded.
Custom orders - 10% of bead value will not be refunded. Custom orders can take a significant amount of time and therefore they are not 100% refundable.
