I was thinking of teaching a class on beaded shapes with the minimal use of anything to shape them other than basic tools.  This was an exercise in thinking of how many of my shapes allow light to permeate the glass and awaken it from within.  It's an extensive set of many fun elements.  As strung it measures 11" in length, the carved focal is 45mm long with 3/32" mandrel hole.  The balance have 1/16" mandrel holes except the Freefall and Lens bead with 3/32".


Oh so tasty a set of beads.... Inspired by the circular glass pieces I saw used in a very unusual leaded glass window on the island of Murano.  While I normally fire polish all my smooth surfaces, I've deliberatly left the chill marks on the beads to emulate the look of old glass.  The sizes range from 1/2" x 1/4" to 1" x 1/4" all with 1/16" mandrel holes.  And this very generous strand of beads measure 19 1/4"" as strung.

Boquet Earrings - $50

Delicate fine silver headpins with pinky lavender daggers, light amber ribbed collar beads and a lovely matching pair of denim blue hollows.  Since these are sterling silver - I've lined the headpins inside the hollows with non tarnishing silvery beads to aid in keeping them pristine.  These measure 2 5/8" from top to tip.

Flirty little trio of rectangular pillars of glass. Measuring appx. 1/4" sq x 15/16",  1", 1 1/16", L.  The mandrel holes are 1/16" diameter.


2 5/8" diameter 12ga sterling silver bangles with a hammered finish and one lampwork bead each that moves freely on the bangle. The beads have been made with silvered glass - all are encased with mica, fine silver wire and a luscious silvered glass that often will form a metallic finish under the clear encasement glass.  Straight sides and a mirror finish make these exquisite.
