Handmade Lampwork Glass Bead Artist
Specialising in Homewares & Jewellery
I am a local Melbourne lamp work glass bead Artist. I have been making glass beads for many years and have been a student of some of the world’s best tutors including:
- Corina Tettinger – U.S.A.
- Loren Stump – U.S.A.
- Holly Cooper – U.S.A.
- Leah Fairbanks – U.S.A.
- Anouk Jasperse – Netherlands
- Kim Fields – U.S.A.
I use glass rods which I melt down. All of the colours and decorations on the beads are glass. I use different techniques to pull glass from different coloured glass rods and incorporate them back into each bead. Every piece is unique as with molten glass is impossible to reproduce designs exactly.
I like to make useful items with my beads which I hope you will treasure as much as I enjoy making them.
My jewellery has traveled to England, Ireland, Italy, Denmark, Germany, Japan, Turkey, New Zealand, Africa Canada and the USA.
