Sun Spots

Inspired by the ever-sunny state of her California home, Heather Trimlett creates light-catching glass pieces that evoke the warmth and vibrance of pure sunlight. The whirling, spiral pattern that makes these earrings pop was inspired both by the sun's rays and by the energy of line that characterized the cartoons of the artist's youth. To capture these qualities in glass, she heats and twists layers of molten colored glass around a mandrel to create a spiral; the colorful dots that dance along the sides recall the brilliant rays the burst joyously from cartoon suns. Fashioned out of cool blues and hot reds, these sets add a playful twist to any outfit. Handmade in El Cajon, California.

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.

        These lamp worked earrings are sensational and always get positive raves.

        Should be worn with plastic "keepers " because they are too beautiful to risk loosing.
