I've been working with glass for over 30 years. Beginning in the early 70's with stained glass, I created custom, one-of-a-kind and limited edition windows for commercial and residential establishments.
In the mid 90s I attended a two week workshop on fused glass and became intrigued with working with glass in its molten state. This led to my interest in beadmaking.
Working with hot glass is very direct and immediate—the ever changing rainbow of color and light while working with dichroic, metals, powders, as well as the glass, continues to fascinate me.
I create my own beads using the ancient technique of lampworking. To make each bead, I melt glass in an oxygen propane flame at temperatures in excess of 2000° F. I then anneal the beads in a kiln for five hours or more. All my designs are unique—incorporating my handmade lampworked beads, Swarovski crystals, silver from Bali, and freshwater pearls
I moved to Arizona in 2004, where I am continuing to create
glass beads and jewelry. I am excited by the thought of incorporating the desert colors and textures into my work.
My move to Arizona also began my love affair with rocks and minerals. I have created a line of jewelry that showcases minerals and fossils with hand beaded bezels, as well as handmade glass beads.
My work can be found at The Phoenix Art Museum and The Bead Museum in Glendale, as well as several fine stores.
I am a juried member of the Sonoran Arts League. I have also received grants from the Arizona Arts Alliance, and the Women’s Enterprise foundation.
One of my pieces will be included in the show “Beads of Whimsy”, at the Joan Mondale Gallery, Textile Center, Minneapolis, MN. March 7- April 12, 2008.

I am not moving to Arizona, rather I travel back and forth every few months to shoot the editorials. The publishers are based out of Vancouver and so I work with them in both citites. I like your jewellery and I would be interested in featuring it in one of the upcoming shoots.
I am also wanting to connect with more local retailers and designers. I am working with Saks and Neiman Marcus, which could honeslty supply everything. However, I like to mix it with a few local suppliers as well.
You are also very connected with the Arts community which intrigues me as well. Do you still work with stain glass etc? I would be very interested in chatting with you in the near future...........
