Each bead is made using an oxygen and propane torch. The glass rods are heated until molten, colors are mixed layer by layer, then formed into shape, and annealed (cooled) in a kiln for strength. Some of my complex beads have more than 20 layers of glass to give the dimensional quality needed.
The metal work is hand formed using specialized tools for shaping, sawing, drilling, and soldering. I try to make every part of the piece so it is truly one of a kind. Even my ear wires are hand fabricated.
My designs and colors are based on the vibrational flow of energy within our chakras. You will often see both technical and energetic qualities listed in my jewelry descriptions.
