Attached is a body of work in lamp work glass beads and polymer clay beads from 2009 - 2017.
My beads are simple and basic and I make a lot of my own beads into jewelry. I describe my style as organic and textural. I don't do a lot of focal beads. I create a lot of basic beads that are the foundation of most pieces of jewelry.
Patterned Beads - Lampwork Glass
|Dots and reactive|
|Quirky Dalmation dots with Red|
Textural nuggets and basic rounds
I created a technique for creating messy swirls of color. I mix opaque, opalescent, and translucent colors. Sometimes I do a simple mix of 2 colors up to 4-5 colors.
These are carved polymer clay beads that were a breakthrough design for me that allowed me to combine my glass with polymer.
Most of these beads are made with polymer clay and alcohol inks.
