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.

Shop Fun and Functional

Greetings from Cocos (the flightless winged bird inspired by my computer’s autocorrect that corrected “Covid” to “Cocos” each time I typed it)!  She is  repurposing her treasured Toilet Paper to hold a flower bouquet.  We agree that it's time for flowers and lightness and FUN.


While Cocos fits the “Fun” category, bead enhanced wine stoppers, fan pulls, bookmarks, tea infusers, cheese knives and more fit “Functional.”
