"My fascination with glass started in the mid 90's. I began visiting local bead shops and trade shows purchasing unusual glass beads and turning them into unique pieces of jewelry. I started selling my pieces at local craft shows. At that time, the beading business was really booming and I wanted to do something different than everyone else. With the encouragement of close friends and family, I enrolled in a four-week lampworking glass bead class. It only took one class and I was hooked! There was open studio time during the week where I could go and practice what I had learned and I spent every available minute there experimenting with different colors and techniques as well as watching other glass artists using different techniques with sheets of glass creating fused jewelry. That process also piqued my interest... I purchased some scrap glass sheets and experimented with fusing. I found I was spending so much time at the studio, I decided to purchase my own equipment and set up a personal studio. My first kiln was large enough for annealing lots of glass beads as well as for fusing glass pendants. I have since purchased two additional kilns and a second torch. Now 12 years later..."
