Hello and welcome. My name is Bobbie and I live in Pokeno, New Zealand. I have had various creative outlets in my life and in early 2009, I discovered the art of glass bead making (lampwork). I love using glass as a creative medium; the design and color possibilities are endless. I don't have a set style, although the "tree bead" series is a signature style of mine. I also love encased beads created with multiple layers of glass and inclusions captured beneath a clear encasing. I love to explore different techniques and push the boundaries of colour, design and execution. Because each bead is completely made by hand, each is unique and no two will ever be exactly the same. This is the beauty and quirkiness of handcraft.
Thank you for supporting handmade.
