All of my beads are handmade at the torch using traditional lampworking techniques. Once the glass is melted in about a 2000° flame and the bead is formed on a mandrel, it is annealed in a kiln for strength and wearability. Each piece is a unique work of art unto itself, sometimes combined with natural materials such as sterling silver, copper, gemstones, pearls, crystals, and shell.

Red Berry and Summer Blues Necklaces

These stunning statement necklaces are each made of 175 headpin beads, handmade at the torch and strung on a satin cord.  They are tied with Chinese snake knots and finished with a sterling silver clasp.

Add a bit of geometric elegance to a tailored white blouse or little black dress with these stunning black and white glass beads.  Each detailed bead is handmde at the torch, and separated by a black saucer bead.  The necklace is finished with a sterling silver bee charm and extender.

From a beachy heart to a heart sporting a kissable frog, pendant possibilities are only limited by imagination.

Earrings

 

Fossil Earrings 

Imagine wearing a brand-new-formed-in-fire bead with a fossil dangle that could be hundreds of thousands of years old.  Mind boggling!

The tiny fossils were found on Canandaigua Lake, part of the beautiful Finger Lakes area in New York state.

Lotus earrings 

And the elegant side of glass bead making.  A silvered black bead drops from a sterling silver lotus flower in this lovely pair of earrings.

When you need just a little something to bring for a hostess, or a bookmark to accompany a gift of poetry...or a pocket frog to keep a singer's voice crystal clear...
