Lampworking is a where a lamp torch is used to melt glass. Once in a molten state, glass is formed by blowing using tools and hand movements. The earliest verifiable lamp worked glass is probably a collection of beads thought to date to the fifth century BC.

“I first got involved in sterling silver jewelry due to skin reactions from store bought jewelry. I took a few classes on soldering silver, then after that it just seemed to click, soon I was forging and creating my own jewelry, it just took off from there. I use sterling silver, hand crafted lamp work glass beads, semi-precious gemstones, Swarovski crystals, a few surprises, combined with a lot of love and passion to create jewelry that is chic, hip and truly unique.”
