As a self-taught Hot Glass Artist (Flame Worker), I explore the properties and possibilities of molten glass focusing on color, design, and texture. For 20+ years I have never sought to repeat the same bead design. Where is the fun in that? I consider myself an Experimental Bead Artist! My beads are made by hand using Italian soft glass and an oxy/propane torch.
Preferring to use minimal tools, my goal is "Organic Elegance." Every bead is properly annealed in a kiln. The beads are cleaned and strung with precious and semi-precious gemstones, pearls, crystals, sterling silver, gold, and other quality materials. Every bead and piece of Jewelry is an Original Design.
