I make glass beads.

In August 2005 I took my first lampworking class at Flame Kissed Beads with Kaleigh Hessel. These are the first beads I ever made.

I rented bench time for three years at FKB where I made a bunch more ugly beads. They got better in time after lots of practice.

In November 2008 I set up a glass studio in my home. I sell beads from time to time out of my husband's studio in Golden Belt.

In 2011, I became a member of ISGB, the International Society of Glass Beadmakers.
