Thanks for stopping by my web site.

I sell my finished handmade glass beads and designs at local artisan shows and galleries.

Some of my work is also available via this website.

Each handmade glass bead is unique, as no two beads are exactly alike. Small handmade lampwork glass beads, ideal for earrings are also a speciality.

What’s the difference between my handmade beads and others you may buy? Artistic design and quality. All my beads are annealed for strength and durability and I stand behind my work.

You know the old saying ‘You get what you pay for!’ Well that’s why handmade lampwork glass beads are always more expensive than the run of the mill, craft store beads.

Have a look at Classes and Upcoming markets

Enjoy!

Meet Wendy


I love making lampwork glass beads. My ideal day would be to make beads all day. I’m a self-taught lampworker but have recently studied with Corinna Tetinger and James Smirchich. I live in Drouin, Victoria, Australia with my husband, Barry.

It gives me great pleasure to create my unique handmade glass bead pieces and an even greater pleasure to see them worn. Although lampworking is quite challenging, I learn new things each day and continue to grow as an artisan. My goal is to make wearable art at an affordable price.

Wholesale pricing is available upon request.
