Art Glass Beads
I create art glass beads. My inspiration comes from the colors, textures and patterns of the natural and human-made landscape. I love capturing these influences in the mesmerizing honey consistency of molten glass.
My glass beads are constructed hollow and then surface decorated using handmade glass shards, reactive glass powder and fumed silver. The beads are then tumbled in a rock tumbler to achieve a soft, smooth, matte finish.
Made to be held or worn!
