All glass beads are hand made by me in my Midwest studio. All beads are properly kiln annealed for strength and durability. I have been designing and creating glass beads and functional glass art since 2001 and have had the honor of having my work highlighted in several publications over the years. I hope you will choose to bring some of my art into your life, either to create with or to treasure.
I tell ya, Amber makes some of the most beautiful beads, OF EVERY KIND! Everything I have ever bought is even more amazing than the photos! Thank you so much, I'll be back again!
