I am an art teacher at a public middle school. A couple of years ago, I took a glass-blowing class and also learned how to make glass beads. Well, I loved doing both, but could not continue to do glassblowing on my own, so I set up my studio where I could continue with the glass beads. I enjoy experimenting with the colors and their reactions to one another, making each bead unique. I take my handmade glass beads and add smaller beads, spacer beads, and metal beads and create one of a kind bracelets, necklaces and sets of earrings. I love making functional art!
