I find the need to go with the flow when I'm at the torch

I rarely have a certain design or color in mind when I sit down to make a glass bead. 
I just go with the flow, pick up a rod of glass and start creating.

Big Hole Bead   I'm playing around with different techniques with my glass and got a nice sparkle-speckle effect on this one.

Hematite and blood red glass bead earrings with Sterling silver french earwires

I like using hematite in my jewelry designs. Hematite is believed to transform negativity and promote optimism. It is known as a grounding stone, thought to increase courage, self-esteem and reduce stress. It is a good stone to aid communication as well as for those just learning how to meditate. It acts as a stabilizing force to balance the mind, body and spirit. 

  Handmade Lampwork Earrings with hematite beads on Sterling silver french ear wires. 
You can purchase these by visiting my shop here

Brown and Green Glass Bead Earrings

Handmade brown and green glass beads made by melting glass in a torch flame. I love the contrast of these two colors. Bottom brown bead has a green swirl design, top brown bead has raised green dots and drops of crystal clear glass on each dot. Intricate, one of a kind pair of earrings. Sterling silver ball beads on top, middle and bottom. Sterling silver wire wrapped onto a soldered jump ring connected to Sterling silver french ear wire. Find them here

Bling Thing..

My handmade lampwork glass beads with their unique style and color. No two alike. Copper wire wrapped with silver metal beads spaced in between. Metal clip is easy to put on and take off.
