Mary creates art glass beads with molten Italian glass using traditional methods. She offers these one-of-a-kind beads for sale individually & as bead-sets. She also sell the beads as meditation focal pieces. The glass beads are constructed hollow and then surface decorated using glass shards, crushed glass shards, powdered frit and/or silver fuming. My beads are then tumbled in a rock tumbler to achieve a soft, smooth matte finish. Finally, the beads are hand-buffed with homemade bead lustre butter. (She is a beekeeper and makes a wax of olive oil and beeswax.) These beads are made to be held!
