My first self-published tutorial is now available. 

Heart Bead Tutorial
A beginner’s guide to making beads in general and specifically about making Heart Beads.

I have been teaching introductory lampwork since 2003.  I have had the pleasure of introducing hundreds of women and a few men to the art of lampworking.  Playing with glass for the first time is a stressful and exciting time.  This Heart Bead reinforces many of the introductory techniques that a new beadmaker has just learned.  This Heart Bead Tutorial has grown out of my weekend introductory class.  This is often our first multi step bead and we usually do it on the morning of our second day together.
This tutorial is geared towards the beginning glass artist and contains instructions for many techniques including: pulling a stringer, starting your bead, heat control, dot and stripe application, working with silver wire and silver leaf, squashing, using heat to shape and more. 
This tutorial is a 6.2MB PDF file available for instant download.

Amy was chosen as the 2014 Commemorative Bead Artist for the Bead and Button Show.  It was a great honour.  265 beads were created and they sold out by the end of the first day of the 2014 show.

Each bead is handmade from Italian, American and/or German glass. The beads are created one at a time and all are individual works of art. Every bead is annealed in a digitally controlled kiln to strengthen them so you will have beads you can treasure for many years.

All beads can be custom ordered in the colours of your choice. If you see something you like, send me an email.
