I make most of my beads using soft (104 COE), usually Moretti/Effetre, Vetrifond, CIM or Lauscha- along with many of the fabulous silver reactive colors currently being produced here in the US. Each bead is fully annealed, which means it has been placed in a kiln while hot, and then cooled at an appropriate rate (digitally controlled) so as to eliminate stress within the bead. Click here for a very well written and easy to understand explanation of annealing if you have questions about the process.

Please visit my on-line shop or my Facebook Page for beads currently available for purchase. Some of my previous work is in the site gallery. Thanks!
