PRODUCT STORY
Heather says: As a California girl a lifetime in the sunshine has clearly influenced my work. I love all things bright and colorful! I began my glass career building beautiful stained glass windows. Then I discovered flame-working and have been playing with fire and glass ever since. Now, 25 years later, I still love to sit down at my torch and create glass beads in vibrant colors and have no intention of slowing down anytime soon!

Today a rod of glass with a colored core is at the heart of my spiral. By heating it and wrapping it carefully layer after layer around a mandrel I create a playful and colorful spiral.

Ok everyone, this is a MUST vote!!! I met Heather about 10 years ago at a national bead show and instantly became the proud owner of many of her fabulous lampwork pieces from which I create my own designs. She is one of the top lampworkers in the U.S. The quality of her workmanship is impeccable and her designs are just plain whimsical. The earrings that have been selected here are just a snippet of her awesome work. I am always stopped whenever I wear a piece with her beads. Trust me, you will not be disappointed..

After taking a bead making class from Heather a few years ago, I realized 2 things: hand made glass beads are expensive because they are little art masterpieces and well worth the investment; and, I would rather spend my tuition buying her beads than trying to make them! And I did!
