My signature bead.  Over the years these quirky faces have evolved into miniature glass sculptures. They are still my favourite thing to make with glass, each one with it's own unique personality. 

2020 Collection

These mesmerizing beads have layers of sea life happening in them.  I build all of the anemone, jellyfish, fish murrini and sea grass in advance.  The bead is carefully built, adding each component and a layer of glass in between.
