Hi! Thanks for visiting my About Me page.
My name is Sue and I live in Pittsburgh, PA. I make all of my beads by hand in my basement studio that my sweetie set up for me. I have a digitally controlled kiln from Arrow Springs, and a Nortel minor torch. I properly anneal all of my beads for strength and durability. Then I clean them with a diamond drill bit and a dremel.
I have taken classes at the Pittsburgh Glass Center. The most notable instructor I have studied under is Mike Mangiafico (google Fig Studios).
I take great joy in making my beads, and I hope you enjoy them too! The photos you see are beads I designed and made myself, but usually have already been sold on eBay. I'll make you an additional set to order that are very similar to the pictured beads. But of course since every one of my beads is a unique hand-made item, there will be slight differences from the picture. If you are concerned about such variations, please contact me and we can work it out.
Thanks so much for visiting my web store!
