I am fairly new to the area having moved to Ardoch to retire last year. My studio is finally up and running and I am excited to be able to get back to my torch and offer some items for sale.

I am mostly self taught and enjoy the challenge of learning new techniques and improving my skills.  I have been fusing glass and making beads for many years.

I make lampwork beads by melting rods of glass at the torch and carefully winding the glass on to a mandrel to create beads.  I also use my kiln to fuse glass.  

I have a variety of handcrafted items for sale.  I sell beads as singles or in sets for creative people to make their own jewelry.  I also offer finished jewelry pieces for sale and seasonal items.

I will be doing demonstrations throughout the day at my torch so you can see how beads are made. Hope to see you on the tour.
