I work with an oxygen/propane torch, known as lampwork to turn glass into liquid.
The torch work allows me to shape glass for added dimension to my projects.
I also create beads using the same method.
All of my work is properly annealed for heirloom quality.
Vessel beads can hold essential oil, sand, tears or air.
Vessel beads can be worn or hung as a sun catcher.
No two are exactly alike, they are created flat backed for comfort.
Memorial beads can be created to honor of a beloved family member or pet, past or present. I can incorporate ashes, hair, fabric, horse hair or sand within glass. Ashes and sand will appear whispy white, other ingredients tend to appear as black traces.
To add ashes I only need a tea spoon.
