I work molten glass into blown hollow and wound glass beads to create original, light infused jewelry that is simple, yet powerful; sophisticated, but fun! My materials include Italian soda lime glass; furnace glass; glass enamels; silver leaf; fine silver; and sterling silver. My beads are light as air, but tough as nails because they have been kiln annealed for strength and durability. I hand forge my ear wires and hook clasps to give my work a distinctive look.
