Here is where you'll find interesting, unique, and beautiful glass beads, handcrafted jewelry, and one-of-a-kind gift items.
From a single glass bead sitting on a window ledge, reflecting pretty coloured flashes of light when the sun hits it, to a statement bead on a long silver chain hanging around your neck and completing the outfit you painstakingly put together for that special event. Through my work I help people celebrate the little pleasures in life, one bead at a time.
Hi there, I'm Debbie and I am a glass beadmaker, jewelry designer, and creative enthusiast. I am passionate about handmade!
As a crafter most of my life, I enjoy the art of making regardless of the medium. I thrive on being creative.
Lampworking has opened another level of creating. It is not an art exclusive to beadmaking although beadmaking is a very popular part of it. It's a kind of artwork that allows one to melt glass using a torch and create whatever comes to mind. Some of these may be sculptural pieces such as statues and figurines.
I have been a beadmaker since 2008 when after a lesson with a local artist I knew this would be my new hobby. It would definitely satisfy my creative urges. There is really no limit to how creative you can be with this art form.
I create items that I hope will be received as special, treasured, and unique.
The jewelry making came before the glass. I primarily designed my jewelry using store bought crystals and beads but when I started working with glass I created a whole new line of jewerly. Now I was making beads to incorporate into my jewelry. My jewelry was becoming almost completely handmade. With the addition of precious metals and my unique touch on the components I was using, I found greater satisfaction in what I was creating and putting up for sale in my shop.
I strive to create pieces that are both wearable and outstanding.
Take a tour of my store, read my blog, sign up to my mailing list, send me an email and ask me questions. My passion for this art goes beyond just making something pretty, although that makes it even more pleasant, but it allows me to be creative and share that with other like minded people.See more now
