Thanks for visiting Beads of Sunshyne! All of the beads listed are handcrafted with love by me, Leigh, in my studio. I use primarily Italian Effetre (Murano), CiM, Double Helix silver glass, and Glow Glass. Every Beads of Sunshyne is properly annealed for strength and durability using a quality Glass Hive digitally controlled kiln. Every piece is then inspected and cleaned. If you see something you like but need it assembled into wearable jewelry, just let me know. I'd happy to create the finished piece for you!
I'm a social worker by day, working with an amazing agency supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities... and a Lampwork Artisan by night, which is where I have my therapy sessions ;) I've always been drawn to glass art. Something about the transformation from sand to glass to art has always awed me. When I got to sit down behind a torch during a safety and beginners class I was instantly hooked! Now, I get to share my Beads of Sunshyne with you! See Less
