Hello & welcome!

Thank you for checking out my NEMAA shop!

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, handmade frit (crushed glass), reactive frit powder and fumed silver. My beads are then tumbled in a rock tumbler to achieve a soft, smooth, matte finish. Finally, the beads are hand-buffed with a homemade bead luster butter made from olive oil and beeswax.

Individual focal beads and bead sets are in my shop. I am happy to break up sets or add to them. Please contact me by email with any specific requests. All of my work is available for curbside pick up at my home or through shipping.
