Handcrafted Beads and Jewelry

About EarthnFire Designs

 Early in life geology was my interest, and so was art. Although I didn't follow either one as a profession, now in later life, when I've decided what really fuels my creative fire, I've combined geology and art. All those wonderful gems that I liked as a kid, combined with an artistic bent, is a natural combination in making jewelry and lampwork beads. The pieces you will see here on my site reflect and represent the natural world.

Regarding my lampwork bead designs, I look at colors and design in nature, fashion, magazines, architecture, etc. All of my lampwork beads are kiln annealed and thoroughly cleaned after removal from the mandrel. I work with "soft" Italian glass, Bullseye glass and borosilicate glass.

All of the items on this site are strung or constructed by me. I don't sell commercially made items here.

Because I see colors and designs in wood, and it's a wonderful medium, I've collected found wood to make hiking/walking sticks. I also paint flowers and other images on rocks, and I'm into miniatures, both room boxes and constructing my own tiny things. I also dabble in mosaics and resin. You'll find these items on the Other Arts and Crafts page but it's mostly fluff and not for sale unless indicated.
