Beadmaking... Creating beads can take hours upon hours of time without noticing the day is passing quickly. I LOVE when that happens! The lure of the torch won me over from the very start and most of my creative time is spent making glass beads. I'm a bit of a pyromaniac at heart so what better way is there to combine my love of color & glass with fire?... Exactly.      ~            Ilene Richardson, Glass Artist

HANDMADE GLASS BEADS & JEWELRY

One-Of-A-Kind Beads in a diverse collection combined with Sterling Silver
to create unique one-of-a-kind bracelets, earrings and necklaces.
 

Together Glass & Sterling Silver create elegant jewelry you can experience for casual everyday wear, career and romantic evenings to even the most formal occasions and weddings. Custom orders are available and a selection of glass bead jewelry is available for purchase on the website. Unique Wedding Beads are custom made special orders taking 2-3 weeks to completion.

From detailed floral designs to exquisite abstract beads in which the colors of glass react together in the heat to form various incredible color combinations, it is easy to fall in love with glass jewelry. In addition to the charming sea creatures & others that seem to create themselves as the glass is worked in the heat, they seem to win everyone's heart. In addition, solo pendant beads are created and displayed on sterling silver necklaces or available on leather cords.

All beads are made with Italian Moretti Effetre, Vetrofond, Lauscha , Double Helix, CIM or Gaffer glass in the glass studio. You can be certain that every bead is kiln annealed for durability and strength, then cleaned and checked for quality, guaranteed for as long as you own it.

EACH BEAD IS A WORK OF ART.  ~  SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE BEADS & JEWELRY FOR SALE!
