Garden Memories Series

Garden Memories Series

This new series of beads is inspired by a rose garden that I at one time planted and faithfully tended...The mix of well over 100 roses bushes, climbers, and ramblers, kept me quite busy. I miss the garden but that's okay. I've found gardening in glass to be way more fun and rewarding.

Roman Bath House Series

Roman Bath House Series

The Roman Bath House series has been my most favorite series to date. . . The minty copper green so beautifully accents the textured silver base glass and goldstone detail. The original set was inspired by pictures that my lovely mother in law sent to me upon her return home from Italy.

Lost Civilization Series

Lost Civilization Series

I LOVE ANCIENT WORLD HISTORY so much that I used to study it just for fun. The idea of lost civilization intrigued me most. Of course there are no pictures of these presumed lost places, but my mind's eye can see them.

This series of beads is based on my idea of what lies undiscovered on the Mediterranean floor. That is why I choose iridescent blue and green glass. It provides an aquatic like backdrop for the motifs that would have likely graced the walls of a lost piece of architecture.

I imagine that this series will continue to grow because I truly have a passion for the concept.
