Heather Trimlett is a highly respected teacher and flameworking artist. Her knowledge of glass beadmaking is extensive, shaped by almost 25+ years at the torch. Heather's work approaches perfection and pushes the envelope in shape and form. Her beads are vibrant in their color and enthusiastic design just like she is, their color palette a crisp and clean mix of primary colors.
Heather's first attempt at beadmaking was in 1989 when the American glass bead movement was in its infancy. By 1992 she had an oxygen & propane torch and in 1993 she attended her first SGB Gathering in Prescott, AZ and met an organized group of people doing the same thing.
A born problem solver, Heather has also designed tools to make her glass beadmaking easier. Her other passion is sharing her knowledge of beadmaking with others.
